#Romania2019.eu/Dancila: National Museum of Jewish History and Holocaust in Romania to benefit from Government’s entire support.
The project of the National Museum of Jewish History and the Holocaust in Romania benefited and will benefit from the entire Government support, aiming at the ambitious objective to contribute to the promotion of Holocaust education in the entire Romanian society, Prime Minister Viorica Dancila said on Wednesday.
The head of the Executive participated in the opening of the international conference titled "Future of Memory: The National Museum of Jewish History and the Holocaust in Romania", the second event of the Romanian Presidency’s mandate at the EU Council addressing the fight against anti-Semitism, xenophobia and all forms of intolerance.
The prime minister reminded that between 2016 and 2017 Romania was the president of the International Alliance for the Holocaust Memorial.
"This experience has shown that additional measures are needed at national level both to promote Holocaust education and to establish in the public awareness of the Romanian society some elements related to Romania’s responsibility in the Holocaust events and the memory of the Holocaust victims in Romania. The project I mentioned, the opening of the National Museum of the Jewish History and the Holocaust in Romania, aims at the ambitious objective of contributing to the promotion of Holocaust education at the level of the entire Romanian society," said the Prime Minister.
Viorica Dancila pointed out that "all relevant decision makers from the governmental sector to the local authorities, the Jewish community and international partners" are involved in this project.
The Prime Minister welcomed the presence at the conference of the representatives of some of the most important memorial museums and thanked them for their involvement in the realization of the project of the National Jewish History Museum and the Holocaust in Romania.
