“On March 6 we celebrate the Righteous that unite humanity and make us feel part of the same destiny”

What is the Day of the Righteous?

On 10 May 2012, the Members of the European Parliament in Strasbourg accepted Gariwo's appeal - signed by many citizens and representatives of the world of culture - by setting up the European Day of the Righteous on 6 March, the date of the death of Moshe Bejski, creators of the Yad Vashem Avenue of the Righteous Among the Nations. Starting from the definition of Yad Vashem, we have extended the concept of Righteous to include those who, throughout the world, have saved human lives in all genocides and defended human dignity during totalitarianism. From 7 December 2017, the Day of the Righteous is civil solemnity in Italy: every year on 6 March we celebrate the example of the Righteous of the past and present to spread the values ​​of responsibility, tolerance and solidarity.

The Day of the Righteous of the Humanity is celebrated with commemorations in Italy, in Europe and in the world, in the Gardens of the Righteous, in schools, with institutions, local administrations, local associations and thanks to the work of all the subjects that animate GariwoNetwork, that unites the realities involved in spreading the message of the Righteous.
