The third commemoration of the International Day of Remembrance of and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism occurs during trying times for the international community, with the ongoing consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic felt around the world. With the international community being focused on the response to the pandemic and cancellation of many memorials and commemorations, it is critical to take the time to remember and honour the victims of terrorism.
Under the auspices of the United Nations Secretary-General Mr. António Guterres, an online high-level event, “Not Forgotten: Stories of Remembrance of Victims of Terrorism”, will be held for victims to speak about remembrance on their own terms, reminding the audience that it is not only about bereavement, but also about acknowledging the experience of survivors.
A short film on remembrance will be launched, with testimonies of victims and survivors of terrorism demonstrating their individual journey and experience, especially since the onset of the pandemic. This will be followed by an interactive discussion with a panel of victims, victims’ associations, and experts on how the pandemic has affected the ability to honour and commemorate victims and survivors of terrorism.
This event is organized in collaboration with the Group of Friends of Victims of Terrorism.
