The Activists for Peace, presented an exhibition with the topics: “Kristallnacht” a Nazi movement created and organized by Hitler and Goebbels, where more than a hundred Jews were killed, and more than 30,000 were detained and later sent to concentration camps. Ghettos, (small, closed spaces) were urban districts where the Germans forced the Jewish population to live in miserable conditions.
They also talked about the lives of each survivor, whose Human Rights were violated, by an act that divided the history of mankind in a before and after.
The following phrases were written by the citizens:
“The exhibition was really good. It helped me better comprehend what happened to the Jews.”
“I liked it. It’s better for them to explain what happened, that way we can change the world.”
“I congratulate you on this initiative to educate the citizens that still deny the existence of the Holocaust (Shoah), which took so many innocent lives.”
