In the González Ortega market in Zacatecas, from July 29 to August 7, the Zacatecas International Folklore Festival was held, where the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace (GEAP) presented the gallery "The Holocaust" that was visited by more than 1,560 people.
GEAP volunteers organized this activity through the Educating to Remember Program, which aims to strengthen a culture of peace and respect for the dignity of the human family.
The educational event was attended by Carlos Uriel Trinidad, head of the Department of Citizen Attention; William Briceño, director of the Faculty of Medicine of the Autonomous University of Zacatecas (UAZ); the state coordinator of GEAP, Eulogio Ayala Santoyo; and the young historians Nancy Rodríguez Agüero and Enrique Márquez.
The Fair was visited by more than 1,560 people.
Activists for Peace during the tour expressed that the exhibition is based on the study of the history of the Holocaust and other genocides, for the universal teachings that have been left to humanity and that should be transmitted to present and future generations so that it never happens again.
For his part, the head of Citizen Care, Carlos Uriel Trinidad, said:«I have always thought that people who do not know their history are condemned or forced to repeat it.»
For the GEAP, the recognition of these facts allows the identification of warning signs in the emergence of governments, groups or extremists that carry out actions that may trigger new crimes against the human family. For this reason, they continue to carry out activities like this one throughout the Mexican territory.
