The inauguration


After two years of meetings, conferences, gathering endorsements, as well as developing an international petition by mail and by Internet, a positive outcome was reached. The International Council of Auschwitz reviewed its prior decisions and agreed to add a plaque in the Judeo-Spanish language.
The ceremony of the inauguration will take place on March 24, 2003.
