Room of the "La Unió Jonquerenca" Society

Event for students from various secondary schools in the Alt Empordà region (La Jonquera, Figueres, Vilafant, Roses, l'Escala and Castelló d'Empúries) on the occasion of the International Day of Commemoration of the victims of the Holocaust and crime prevention against humanity.

January 27 - the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz - is the date designated by the United Nations as International Holocaust Victim Commemoration Day.
