Universidad del Caribe to Welcome the Project "Traces to Remember" and Host “Voices of the Holocaust” Forum


On August 21, 2013, the commemorative plaque in honor of the victims and survivors of the Holocaust made its ninth stop at Universidad del Caribe located in Howard. This is the third university to host the project through the National Assembly of Panama.   

Among those attending the event were Deputy Vicente Galvez, Carmen de Fernandez, Chief of Protocol of the National Assembly of Panama; Henry Karndonski, Managing Director of London & Regional Panama and Master Developer of Panama Pacifico; Liliana Mejia, Municipal Treasurer of Arraijan; and representatives of INADEH and Panamá Pacifico, as well as Holocaust survivor Dr. Jaime Segal, and professors and students from Universidad del Caribe.

Deputy Galvez presented the Project and emphasized that actions in support of human rights are highly important to the Panamanian society, adding that they also observe the annual commemoration in honor of the victims of the Holocaust.

Xiomara Rodriguez, President of Universidad del Caribe welcomed the Project and expressed gratitude.  She stated that they were very proud to receive the commemorative plaque in the university, as an effort to promote peace and respect among all cultures and ways of thought, without harming the lives and integrity of human beings, and to serve as a constant reminder to never forget, so that the Holocaust is never repeated in any way. 

At the end of the ceremony, the “Voices of the Holocaust” forum was successfully carried out with the participation of Holocaust survivor Jaime Segal, as well as sixty students and other guests whom expressed gratitude for the lessons shared with them.

The commemorative plaque will be stationed in the Panama Pacific Zone for one month in order to promote this historic event among entrepreneurs and visitors.
