So far we have presented two Slovenian Righteous Among the Nations – Uroš Žun and Andrej Tumpej. This years meeting is dedicated to less known stories of rescuing of the Jews during the Second World War and to brave Slovenians, who helped with pure altruism to save many lifes. Those individuals were Andrej Vendramin, Ludvik Cigüt and families Žilavec and Fartelj. Some further lectures will be dedicated also to the topics, such as: – the Jewish refugees from Central Europe on the NDH (Independent State of Croatia) territory during the war, – the beginnings of the international studies about the Roma genocide, with special emphasis on the question of the Holocaust and the Roma of the Prekmurje Region, – the Jews among the Slovenian communists between the two world wars (presenting the story of Ali Kardoš), – and about examples of good practice of remembering and teaching about the Holocaust in Maribor.
The meeting will be held in the Glazer hall in the University of Maribor Library. The lectures will be held by Dr Anna Maria Gruenfelder, Dr Vera Klopčič, Mag Franc Kuzmič, Mag Renato Podbersič, Boris Hajdinjak, Mag Klemen Brvar and Dr Marjan Toš.
