Pic­tures of the foun­da­tion stone cer­e­mony for the Holo­caust Memo­r­ial in Odesa

On 22 October, the foun­da­tion stone for a new memo­r­ial to the 1941 mas­sacre was laid in Odesa. The future memo­r­ial is the result of an ini­tia­tive of the Centre for Liberal Moder­nity and is funded by the German government.

In our photo series, we have cap­tured moments of the foun­da­tion stone and the com­mem­o­ra­tion cer­e­mony. A detailed report will appear on LibMod shortly.
