UNIC Windhoek learns about the Holocaust for a ‘better future’

27 January 2016- On the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust, the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) Windhoek staff learned about this tragic and defining point in history through a dynamic exhibition at the UN House in Windhoek, Namibia

The exhibition is part of UNIC Windhoek’s Holocaust Educational Outreach Programme, which this year is focusing on “Holocaust Remembrance: Educating for a Better Future”.

This theme “emphasises the universal dimension of Holocaust education as a platform for building respect for human rights, increasing tolerance and defending our common humanity” (UN International Observances).

The UNIC Windhoek staff learned about the importance of the genocide prevention and are ready to share this knowledge with their peers.

The exhibition is open to the public and will be set up at the UN House for the next two weeks.
