Event Details

[In-Person] UN Holocaust Memorial Day Commemoration

Tuesday, January 17, 2023

8:00 pm – 9:00pm HKT

Free admission

Please join Asia Society Hong Kong Center and the Hong Kong Holocaust and Tolerance Centre for the 2023 United Nations Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration on January 17 at 8:00 pm.

We will hear from Poland-born Holocaust survivor Mr. Pinchas Gutter who, in 1942 at the age of 10, was deported from the Warsaw Ghetto to the killing site of Maidanek, and then to a series of concentration camps. Pinchas shut himself off from the terrors surrounding him and tried his best not to be noticed, to become almost invisible. But, after liberation, his photographic memory would not let his past fade away, and Pinchas struggled to deal with nightmares and flashbacks. Pinchas is the first Holocaust survivor to be immortalized in an interactive projection in the USC Shoah Foundation's Dimensions in Testimony – in partnership in Asia with the Hong Kong Holocaust and Tolerance Centre.
