The establishment of European Day of the Righteous - which was approved on 10 May 2012 by the European Parliament upon Gariwo proposal - is a milestone in spreading the message brought by the Righteous.


In order to strengthen this heritage over time we set up 6 March Committee to support the celebrations of European Day of the Righteous; a tool to renew and extend the ceremonies in honor of the Righteous every year throughout Europe.

The European Day of Righteous

The value of individuals and personal responsibility

On May 10, the European Parliament in Strasbourg adopted the Written Declaration establishing March 6th as European Day in memory of the Righteous.
The concept of Righteous, born from the elaboration of the Yad Vashem Memorial to remember the non-Jews who rescued the Jews, becomes the patrimony of all humanity.
The term "Righteous" is no longer confined to the Holocaust only; it becomes a point of reference for those who remember the genocide and totalitarianism in all their efforts to defend human dignity.

The significance of this decision is reminiscent of one of the cornerstones of European culture: the value of the individual and personal responsibility.
