On Thursday 8-2-2024 the Evening High School and Lyceum of Corfu, honoring Holocaust Remembrance Day, made a short educational visit to the Synagogue.

Mrs. Nina Vital, a member of the Jewish community of Corfu, informed the students of the two schools about the long-standing presence of the Jews in Corfu and their annihilation within a few days in the crematoria of Auschwitz in June 1944. With particular interest the students they watched her presentation interspersed with personal memories and experiences and reflected on the consequences of fanaticism and hatred in the history of peoples.

The visit concluded with a small reference to the decoration of the Synagogue area and the major holidays and ceremonies of the Jewish religion.

We are very grateful to Mrs. Vital for the time she gave us and the information she shared with us.
