Throughout his long musical career Daniel Barenboim has distinguished himself for his commitment to building bridges between peoples. Prestigious positions at the head of institutions such as the Berlin Staatsoper and Teatro alla Scala in Milan have been joined by international awards and honors such as the Westfälischer Friedenspreis (2010) and the Otto Hahn Medal for Peace awarded by the German Society for the United Nations (2010). Two days ago he received his fifth Légion d'honneur, this time flanked by lifelong friend Martha Argerich. Since 1999 Barenboim has led the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, an extraordinary ensemble founded with Edward Said that brings together young Israeli and Palestinian musicians.

The Sons of the Shoah Association APS was founded in 1998 by survivors of the Shoah and their family members. It has been of national significance from the very beginning, devoting all its energies and resources to activities to raise public awareness around Shoah issues, receiving numerous institutional awards. The evening will be an opportunity to support the educational and training projects of the Sons of the Shoah Association APS, focused on the themes of Jewish awareness and Shoah history. A founding member of the Museo della Shoah in Rome and the Fondazione Memoriale della Shoah in Milan, the Figli della Shoah Association has contributed since its founding to the campaign for the approval of the Law that established January 27 as the annual commemorative date of Holocaust Remembrance Day.
