International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust (Costa Rica)

 

IAYSP-Costa Rica organized an activity to attend the “International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust.” This event focused on seeing a movie related to the theme, called “Resistance.” It is about a French artist that helped Jewish kids escape the claws of the Nazis during World War II. Kalev Alpízar, an IAYSP Member and leader, gave an introductory talk to develop some prior knowledge.

This event was organized to commemorate and not forget the atrocities that a person can commit if absolutely no values and principles are practiced and realize that living with hate and prejudice will only lead to a life without peace.
