As part of her visit to Brussels on January 23-24, Prime Minister Dăncilă attended the ceremony of the International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust, organised on Wednesday, January 23, by the European Jewish Congress, under the patronage of the President of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani. The event was attended by both senior European officials and prominent members of the European and international Jewish community.

The Romanian Prime Minister delivered an address at the opening of the event, evoking the memory of the Holocaust victims and stressing the need to strengthen joint European and international efforts to counter antisemitism and the proliferation of any forms of discrimination.

Moreover, the Romanian official underlined the importance that the Romanian Government grants to measures to combat racism, intolerance, xenophobia and hate-speech, as an integral part of Romania’s agenda for the Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

Prime Minister Dăncilă underlined the actions taken to counter antisemitism, which have established Romania as a regional leader in this process. Last but not least, the Prime Minister emphasised the importance of education in fostering tolerance in the future generations, by promoting role models in humanity and courage, as well as European values.
