The Macedonian Holocaust Fund signed Tuesday memorandums of cooperation with the City of Skopje and several institutions and organizations, aimed at providing assistance for the completion and structuring of the Skopje-based Holocaust Memorial Center.
The Fund signed memos with the Cultural Heritage Protection Office, Cadastre Office, State Archives, Statistical Office, Museum of Macedonia, museums and bureaus for monument protection from Skopje, Bitola and Stip, National and University Library "St. Kliment Ohridski", Faculties of Philosophy, Philology and Dramatic Arts within University "Ss.Cyril and Methodius", as well as University for Audio-Visual Arts.
"The Center will focus on development, research, science, education and archiving, which requires support from these institutions. That is why we have signed these cooperation memorandums", said Holocaust Fund president Liljana Mizrahi.
According to her, since the Center's construction was nearing completion, its function and content were mulled, whereas realization required institutional support.
