“Against prejudice, we teach to remember”
An “ignoble and cowardly” act. So the president and the director of the National Museum of Italian Judaism and the Shoah – MEIS, Dario Disegni and Amedeo Spagnoletto, defined in a note the antisemitic letter received by the museum in recent days , which authorities are investigating. It is a gesture, wrote Di Segni and Spagnoletto, which “only increases the determination and tenacity with which the museum conducts and will carry out the mission assigned to it by the Italian Parliament to keep the memory alive, to fight against antisemitism and educate the new generations to the principles of equality and brotherhood that our Constitution calls on us to pursue”. “Countless demonstrations of solidarity and affectionate friendship” from authorities and citizens from all over the country, reads the note, reached the MEIS.
