Argentine museum marks Holocaust

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The Buenos Aires Holocaust Museum marked Holocaust Day with a memorial event Friday.

The ambassadors of Croatia, Austria
and Poland, human rights officials from the External Affairs Ministry
and Jewish leaders were at the tribute, where six candles were lit, the
Partisans Hymn was sung and survivors’ poetry was read. New plaques to honor those
killed under the Nazis were inaugurated at the museum’s Memory Room.

Some 12,000 students visited the museum last year.
