For twenty years, the non-profit organization Institute of the Terezín Initiative (ITI) has been creating a unique database of 175,000 Czechoslovak Holocaust victims. In addition, IT organizes a well-known annual nationwide event – the Public Reading of the Holocaust Victims` Names – Yom Ha-Shoa. This event was probably the reason for the dismissal of director Tereza Štěpková. The Board of Directors removed her from day to day without giving a valid reason. The chairman of the board, Pavel Štingl, appointed a lawyer, Martin Thiel, to replace her. ITI staff fear that the victims' database and other projects will be suspended or cancelled.

We would like to invite you to partake in the 16th edition of the Public Reading of the Holocaust Victims' Names - Yom Ha-Shoah on April 8, 2021 from 2 pm to 5 pm.

As in the years before, we participate with our reading of names in the honouring of the heroes and victims of the Holocaust, called Yom Hazikaron laShoah ve-laG'vurah (Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day) that reminds us of the day the Jewish prisoners of the Warsaw Ghetto stood up against their oppressors. As in the years before, we will read out the names of those persecuted and killed by the Nazis during WWII just because of their origin.

Unfortunately, like in the last year, we will only be able to meet online.
