Remembrance Day 2023, Giorgia Meloni’s Message: “Read Racial Infamy”

“The Shoah represents the abyss of humanity. An evil that has also deeply touched our nation with the infamy of the 1938 racial laws.” This is the message of Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni on the occasion of Remembrance Day. “78 years ago, on January 27, with the demolition of the gates of Auschwitz, the world saw with its own eyes the horror of the Shoah, the deliberate Nazi plan for the persecution and extermination of the Jewish people. Today Italy pays homage to the victims, holds on to loved ones, honors the courage of all the righteous who risked or lost their lives to save others, and bows to survivors for the tireless service of witness they carry forward.”

Liquid and very clear words those of the head of government who recalls the Holocaust on Remembrance Day. “It represents the abyss of humanity. An evil that also deeply touched our nation with the infamy of the racial laws of 1938. It is our duty to ensure that the memory of those events and what happened is not reduced to a mere exercise in style because, as Ferruccio De Bortoli recently recalled the columns of Corriere della Sera, memory is like a garden. He needs to be taken care of. Otherwise, it will be overgrown with weeds. And the flowers of the righteous will fade. devoured”.
