Echoes of Remembrance – A Journey through Memories

A joint artistic Holocaust commemoration event

The Jewish Museum of Belgium

Event program

The MultiMemo "Multidirectional Memory: Remembering for Social Justice" project Dissemination Conference and Joint Artistic Holocaust Commemoration Event "Echoes of Remembrance" – A Journey through Memories is organized by CEJI – A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe, in partnership with the Jewish Museum of Belgium.

The event aims to promote and explore commemoration through a multidirectional approach to Holocaust remembrance with the intervention of professionals, academic speakers and artists.

It will be structured in two parts. Firstly, we will explore the concept of multidirectional memory and how it can be put into practice at a grassroots level through a panel discussion.

The second part of the event will be an exploration of the applied concept featuring local artists commemorating the holocaust through a multidirectional approach, thus honouring the memory of different communities bearing that suffering.
