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.
Milan has celebrated 6 March with the Concert for the Europe of the Righteous. With the speeches by H.E.R. Mons. Mario Delpini, Giuseppe Sala e Gabriele Nissim and the extraordinary participation of Antonella Ruggiero. To the organ, Emanuele Carlo Vianelli, Alessandro La Ciacera, Roberto Olzer and, to the harp, Adriano Sangineto.
On the occasion of the Day of the Righteous, Istvan Bibo, Simone Veil, Wangari Maathai and Denis Mukwege have been honoured at the Garden of Milan. The theme chosen by the Association for the Garden of the Righteous for 2019 is "Humanity at a crossroads. Europe and Africa between indifference and responsibility".
The “Righteous of Monte Stella hill" Virtual Garden is enriched with new figures. During the ceremony held in Palazzo Marino, after the speeches made by Lamberto Bertolé, Giorgio Mortara and Pietro Kuciukian, ten parchments have been delivered to the Righteous representatives, with these motivations.
