On the occasion of the 12th International Holocaust Remembrance Day on 27 January, numerous memorial events are being held in Rome, many of them involving schoolchildren. Established in 2000 by the European parliament to commemorate the day in 1945 that the survivors of Auschwitz concentration camp were liberated by the Russian army, the initiative honours the memory of the millions of Jews that suffered persecution, deportation, imprisonment and genocide.

At 09.00, Palazzo Valentini on Via IV Novembre screens a documentary "Dove vi portano gli occhi - a colloquio con Edith Bruck", with the Hungarian writer and Holocaust survivor in attendance.

Also at 09.00 in the Sala della Protomoteca at the Campidoglio, Rome
