United Nations Holocaust Memorial Day Commemoration 2024

2024-04-10T21:20:21+08:00Tags: , |

The Hong Kong Holocaust and Tolerance Centre was honored to host the annual United Nations Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration on 25th January, 2024 at 7:30pm at JC Cube, Tai Kwun.

This year’s keynote speaker was Holocaust survivor Peter Gaspar. Born in Czechoslovakia, Peter’s life was forever changed when the Nazis occupied his city when he was just four years old. Faced with the threat of deportation, Peter and his parents went into hiding, seeking shelter wherever they could find it. Peter and his mother were later separated from his father and sent to the Theresienstadt camp, where they endured unimaginable suffering. Today, he strongly believes that educating young people is the key to stopping antisemitism.

“All I remember is constant hunger, constant cold, constant fear.”
–Peter Gaspar
