THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC COMMEMORATES THE MEMORY OF THE VICTIMS OF THE HOLOCAUST

In the Caribbean country, at the headquarters of the Independent University of Santo Domingo, the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace held the photographic exhibition, “The Holocaust: The Genocide Paradigm”, in order to commemorate the International Day in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust.

This exhibition was open to students, professors, academic authorities, employees, and the general public, from Tuesday, January 27 to Friday, February 6, 2015, with the objective of offering a space for reflection and awareness over the severity of genocide acts, what they represent, and the probability that they may repeat themselves.

The receptiveness was positive and it caused a great impact among the attendees, who expressed their thoughts and reflections over the exhibition’s theme.

The Independent University of Santo Domingo (UASD) is the only state university in the Dominican Republic whose headquarters are located in the city of Santo Domingo, and it has precincts in several provinces of this country.
