Shadows Of Shoah, A Unique NZ-Produced Holocaust Exhibition

Press Release Auckland New Zealand date 18/01/2013

Shadows Of Shoah, A Unique New Zealand-Produced Holocaust Exhibition, Will Be Launched On 25 January 2013

Shadows of Shoah is an artistic educational project, communicating the gravity and significance of the Holocaust in a unique way. Using photography and original music, selected episodes from survivors' experiences are presented in a brief, compelling format designed to reach a generation for whom the Holocaust holds little historical relevance, significance, or true understanding.

United Nations International Holocaust Remembrance Day (UNIHRD): The Auckland commemoration of this day is sponsored by Auckland City, the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand and the NZ Commission for UNESCO. Dignitaries and Holocaust survivors will be there.

WHEN: Friday 25 January 2013 from 9-10.30am

WHERE: Raye Freedman Arts Centre, Silver Road, Epsom, Auckland 1023

International Holocaust Remembrance Day, 27 January, is an international memorial day for the victims of the Holocaust, the genocide that resulted in the annihilation of 6 million Jews, 2 million Gypsies, 15,000 homosexual people and millions of others by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. It was designated in 2005 by United Nations General Assembly resolution. UNIHRD has been observed in Wellington for a number of years. This event is the first official commemoration in Auckland.
