a non-profit organization in the service of memory
The Committee's aim is to heighten awareness and interest in the figures and the tales of the Righteous through public events, the use of the media, our Website and the social networks.
It has been active since 1999 but it was officially set up in 2001 as Gardens of the Righteous Worldwide Committee-Gariwo and in 2009 it became a non-profit organization. It is chaired by Gabriele Nissim.
Its activities are supported by an International Scientific Committee formed by prominent personalities.
