Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day 2015

On Thursday 16 April 2015 the people of Israel commemorated like every year millions of Jews who perished in the Holocaust and the Jewish resistance in that period. Czech Ambassador Ivo Schwarz spent this day in Beit Theresienstadt where he met the director Mrs. Tami Kimberg and took part at the big gathering organized on this occasion. The program included a compelling dramatization of feelings of the ghetto prisoners just after the liberation. In Givat Chaim Ikhud he met the holocaust survivor Czech-Israeli artist Mrs. Michal Efrat.

On 15. 4. 2015 the Ambassador was present on a festive ceremony in Yad Vashem, where president R. Rivlin and prime minister B. Netanjahu gave their traditional speeches. One of six torch lighters who opened the ceremony was the holocaust survivor and the chairmen of Czech-Israeli Friendship Association Mr. Avraham Harshalom.
