Exhibitions, television programs, book presentations, concerts, shows and film screenings: there are numerous events organized throughout Italy to celebrate Memorial Day, January 27, to remember the millions of Jewish victims of the Holocaust and the persecution and 'killing of Sinti and Roma, homosexuals and political opponents and to sensitize the community to the memory and solidarity of those who have been able to fight and resist with courage in the darkest page of history.

Among the many appointments we have chosen 10.

At 20.35 Rai1 broadcasts live an exclusive television event:

"Binario 21" with life senator Liliana Segre

, accompanied by

Fabio Fazio

, who takes viewers on a journey to the Shoah Memorial of Milan Central Station.

Here, from Platform 21, on 30 January 1944, the freight train departed which took thirteen-year-old

Liliana Segre to the Auschwitz extermination camp

, together with 604 other people, including her father Alberto: only 22 returned. It is a journey through time with the memories of the senator who also makes use of photographic, press and video materials of the time, to recall one of the darkest events in the pages of human history and

which must never be forgotten

.

The journey down memory lane of "Binario 21" will also see the participation of

Paola Cortellesi

and

Pierfrancesco Favino

and an exclusive performance by the

Chorus of the Teatro alla Scala

at the platforms of Milan Central Station.

Also on TV, History Channel (411 of Sky), at 21.50 broadcasts the documentary

"Drawings from the holocaust"

: the pain of the millions who died in the concentration camps also reaches us through the 30,000 drawings made between 1939 and 1945 and recovered from the strangest places, from the cavities of the walls or hidden under the floorboards and returned to light after the Liberation.

Portraits, still lifes, landscapes, abstract subjects, caricatures and drawings on wrapping paper, on medical prescription books, but also on the back of SS circulars or on cigarette papers, document the story of those who had the courage to bear witness to the crimes committed by the Nazi regime.

They are artists from all over Europe, including Bronislaw Czech (1908-1944 interned in Auschwitz), Leon Delarbre (1889-1974, interned in Auschwitz), Peter Edel (1921-1983, interned in Auschwitz, Sachsenhausen and Mauthausen), together with people without particular artistic talents.

Chora Media, the Foundation Center for Contemporary Jewish Documentation-CDEC, the Memorial of the Shoah of Milan and Urban Vision have joined forces for a special initiative in

Rome, Milan, Naples and Genoa

: the observation of the traditional minute of silence in remembrance of victims of the Holocaust will be filled with a minute of words from Italian survivors.

So in the 4 cities throughout the day it will be possible to listen to

4 original audio extracts

, restored, with the testimonies of Lazzaro Anticoli, Goti Bauer, Cesare Di Segni and Nedo Fiano, Italian citizens deported to concentration camps and survivors of the Shoah.

In

the rich program of free events

organized

in Rome

, entitled "Memoria Genera Futuro", there is a double film screening on January 27, at 6 and 8 pm, at Palazzo delle Esposizioni: the first is

"Jona who lived in the whale"

by Roberto Faenza and the second is

"The truce"

by Francesco Rosi, a cinematographic reading of Primo Levi's novel with John Turturro as the novelist, which recounts the long return journey from Auschwitz to Italy.

Also in Rome at 21 the Auditorium Parco della Musica hosts

"Lechaim"

, a concert for the Day of Remembrance of Raiz and the Auditorium Band, which deal with music related to the theme of the Shoah and discrimination, but also pieces composed by contemporary Jewish artists.

The

Teatro Comunale of Caserta

hosts the

concert by the Jazz & Shoah orchestra

, scheduled for 7.15pm.

The project, commissioned by the Italian Cultural Institute of Brussels and Maestro Angelo Gregorio, was born to tell the unknown story of 15 jazz musicians from

the Terezin concentration camp

.

The Jazz & Shoah orchestra is made up of 6 multi-instrumental masters - Angelo Gregorio on saxophone and singing;

Julien Gillain on violin, piano and singing;

Thimote Lemaire on trombone;

Gabriele Pagliano on double bass;

The Legislative Assembly of Emilia-Romagna celebrates Remembrance Day by screening the documentary film

"Where your eyes take you: a conversation with Edith Bruck"

, the

writer of Hungarian origin who survived the Shoah

.

Her story retraces childhood, adolescence, capture and imprisonment in Auschwitz, the return from the concentration camp and the difficult life after liberation.
