Remembrance Day: screenings and a concert in Beijing

The Italian Embassy in Beijing and the Italian Cultural Institute commemorated Holocaust Remembrance Day with two initiatives: the screening of the film “L’uomo che visse tre volte” by film director Irish Braschi and a video concert.

The film screening was introduced by the Embassy’s Deputy Chief of Mission, Minister Counsellor Emanuele di Lorenzo Badia, at the attendance of representatives of the Israeli Embassy to the People’s Republic of China. The video concert, also dedicated to “Remembrance Day”, took place in Beijing and, through its music, promoted the Klemzer and Yiddish traditions.

Minister Counsellor di Lorenzo Badia recalled that “the Righteous – people of laudable value who challenged the Nazi-Fascist barbarities – included eminent members of Italian diplomacy such as the Consuls in Thessaloniki Guelfo Zamboni and Giuseppe Castruccio, and the Consul in Skopje, Roberto Venturini. In the wake of this honourable tradition of Italian diplomacy, the Farnesina and the network of Italian Embassies and Consulates organise activities worldwide to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust, with the aim of avoiding that similar tragedies ever be repeated.”
