Europe and the United Nations commemorate the victims of the Shoah each winter
on the date of Auschwitz’s liberation in 1945; the Italian Academy presents an
annual academic event exploring issues of discrimination and crimes against
humanity. In previous years, the Academy broadened its focus to explore groups
that were targeted in the racism and xenophobia of the Nazi and Fascist
regimes, and that suffered and died along with the millions of Jews. This year,
our Holocaust Remembrance will focus on music, Fascism and the Holocaust.
