Morocco commemorates International Holocaust Remembrance Day

For the first time since Israel and Morocco resumed ties, the North African country commemorated International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Casablanca’s Beit El Synagogue held a special ceremony to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Attending the ceremony were Morocco’s Education Minister, the head of Israel’s mission in Morocco, UN representatives in the country, the president of the Jewish community and members of the Jewish community.

Israel’s Foreign Minister Eli Cohen stated: “The International Holocaust Day ceremony in Morocco is a historical event that expresses the deepening of relations between the countries after the signing of the Abraham Accords and strengthens the relationship between the nations for the benefit of future generations.”
