Programme of the Synagogue


Remembrance Day for Slovenian Holocaust Victims

Various events

26. April 2022

On 26th of April Slovenia commemorates Slovenian victims of the Holocaust. On this day in 1944, the occupying forces gathered the Jews of Prekmurje in the synagogues in Murska Sobota and Lendava, and took them from there via Čakovec and Nagykanizsa to Auschwitz. Until then, the Jewish community in Prekmurje was the largest in Slovenia, but only a handful of these people survived the Holocaust.

On this occasion, a number of events will take place in Slovenia:

  • City Hall of the Municipality of Lendava, 10:00, presentation of the project “Never Forget”.
    The Mayor of the Municipality of Lendava, Janez Magyar, will address the audience. Representatives of the project partners will speak about the project “Never Forget – Remembering the Holocaust and building tolerance and solidarity in the EU”: President of the Jewish Community of Čakovec Andrej Pal, from the Center of Jewish Cultural Heritage Synagogue Maribor project coordinator Marjetka Bedrač and Tanja Šimonka, Head of Social Affairs Municipality of Lendava.
  • Jewish cemetery in Dolga vas near Lendava, 11:30, laying of wreaths.
    Representatives of local and ethnic institutions and representatives of Croatia, Hungary and Israel will pay tribute to the victims of the Holocaust in Slovenia

    The event is organized by the Association of Jewish Communities of Graz and Ljubljana.
