Gariwo, the forest of the Righteous, in collaboration with the Association of the Righteous on Monte Stella hill, is pleased to invite you to our yearly event made of two meetings on:
The virtues of the Righteous
The identity of Europe
The conference is a first step towards the commemorations planned for 6 March, the Day set up by the EU to remember and honour the Righteous.
Over the recent years we have honoured several Righteous people by planting trees in their memory in the Garden of the Righteous on Monte Stella hill. Now we want to start from this experience to reflect on the significance of the memories linked to a common identity. This meeting is the first date towards the celebrations of 6 March, European Day of the Righteous set up by the European Parliament in Strasbourg in past May in response to Gariwo's call.
