On May 14, a discussion on the topic "Educating to Remember - The Holocaust: Paradigm of Genocide" was held at the Latin University of Panama.
Mr. Osvaldo Aguilar, Coordinator of the Master’s Programs of the Latin University of Panama Law School; Prof. Alberto Osorio, Expert in History and Philosophy, from the National University of Panama; and Holocaust survivor, Dr. Jaime Segal, began this academic event with the participation of students from the University’s Law School.
Professor Osorio introduced advances of his next publication, titled "The Inquisition and the Nazis, An Approximation of Centuries," showing students the similarities that occurred during these bloody times in world history and how this is reflected in the current tendency of human beings’ loss of values and identities. He emphasized that the word "genocide" is not enough to define the death of an entire generation that is lost when a human being dies, let alone when millions of people die as a result of a political ideology.
Dr. Jaime Segal gave his speech by focusing on the book "The History of the Final Solution" by the Argentinean writer Daniel Rafecas, who investigated the different stages that led to the extermination of European Jews, developing in this way a time line of the genocidal criminal plan inspired by Hitler and approved and organized by the leaders of German Nazism.
At the end of the event the Traces to Remember commemorative plaque was unveiled by Dr. Segal and his family, being exhibited in the main lobby of the University for a period of 15 days.
