Giorno della Memoria

Giorno della Memoria (Holocaust Remembrance Day) is today, January 27. At the Italian Consulate, Italians, Italian Americans, Italian Jews and non-Italian Jews, and others gather to read and to hear the names of Jews deported from Italy during World War II and to commemorate all the Holocaust’s victims on the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. The Institute cosponsors the event every year along with the Consulate, the Italian Cultural Institute, the Centro Primo Levi, Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimó, and the Italian Academy at Columbia University.
