“Our commitment must be to remember the victims who perished, respect the survivors still with us, and reaffirm humanity's common aspiration for mutual understanding and justice.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
The Slovak post office is commemorating the memory of holocaust victims with a stamp to mark 75 years since the first deportation of Jews from Slovakia. An exhibition at the Postal Museum in Banská Bystrica is also being organized.
The stamp, which is entitled 'Honour' includes a yellow star and label with the date March 25, 1942, the day of the first transport of Jewish women from Slovakia. The designer is student Karin Uváčková.
The exhibition will be open at the Postal Museum, Banská Bystrica until November 16.
