FCJE awards the Spanish Senate for its commitment to Holocaust remembrance

The Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain (FCJE) will award its highest honor, the Senator Ángel Pulido Award, to the Senate of Spain as recognition of the institution’s commitment to the official State Act on Holocaust Remembrance Day and Prevention of Crimes against Humanity for over a decade.

The award will be presented during a tribute dinner in Madrid, and it will be accepted on behalf of the Senate by its president, Pedro Rollán.

As confirmed by the FCJE, former presidents of the Upper House such as Juan José Laborda, members of the current Senate Board such as María del Mar Blanco, diplomatic representatives from various countries, and personalities from the political and civil life, as well as other friends of the Spanish Jewish community, will attend the event.

The Senator Ángel Pulido Award is the highest honor bestowed by Spanish Jews upon an individual or institution in recognition of their contribution to the development of Jewish communities and the Hispanic world, the defense of freedom of conscience, religious pluralism, the fight against antisemitism, and efforts to promote closer ties between Spain and Israel.
