Memorial for BIIb – 8th March 2021

A remembrance event for the Theresienstadt family camp in Auschwitz has taken place on the 8th March at 6pm on Loreta square, Prague. Due to the current situation, the remembrance event took place without public presence and was streamed online.

The event was opened by a miniconcert at the Bubny railway station, which we have prepared in collaboration with mezzo-soprano singer Edita Adlerová and professors and students of the high school Přírodní škola.

The six candles lit in front of the Czernin Palace, the residence of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, were joined by a seventh candle, which was lit at the former lagerhouse BIIb in Birkenau by the director of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum Piotr Cywiňski.
