Holocaust Remembrance Day 2023

Sapienza's events for International Holocaust Remembrance Day on 27 January
Sapienza commemorates January 27, the day on which the gates of Auschwitz were torn down, with a series of events on the Shoah, Italian racial laws, persecution and deportation.
On 26 January at 11.30 am the Rectorate Building's Aula degli Organi collegiali will be hosting the conference L'Università di Roma e le leggi razziali del 1938  (The University of Rome and the racial laws of 1938). As part of the work, an online platform will be presented with documentation on the anti-Semitic policy and the expulsion of Jewish citizens from the University of Rome due to the racial laws of 1938. The contribution on a historiographical level is relevant because Sapienza, Italy's largest university and the flagship of the fascist regime, constitutes a case study of primary importance. At the end of the first session, a commemorative plaque will be unveiled in the Rectorate Building's Aula Magna "to the women and men of the University of Rome who were victims of the racial laws, the anti-Jewish persecution and the indifference of so many".
The event will be livestreamed.
On Friday, 27 January, at 2 pm, Villa Mirafiori's Lecture Room V (5) will be hosting a seminar entitled Sulle tracce di nomi propri, organised by lecturers Orietta Ombrosi and Giovanni Licata.
On 26 and 27 January in the Cappelletta lecture hall of the Department of Philosophy, there will be a continuous screening of the documentary Shoah by Claude Lanzmann.
