International Holocaust Remembrance Day is an international memorial day on January 27th commemorating the tragedy of the Holocaust that occurred during the Second World War. It commemorates the genocide that resulted in the deaths of 6 million Jews and 11 million others, by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. It was designated by the United Nations General Assembly resolution 60/7 on 1 November 2005 during the 42nd plenary session. The resolution came after a special session was held earlier that year on 24 January 2005 during which the United Nations General Assembly marked the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps and the end of the Holocaust.

On 27 January 1945, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi concentration and death camp, was liberated by the Red Army.

"For ever let this place be a cry of despair and a warning to humanity, where the nazis murdered about one and a half million men, women and children, mainly jews from various countries of Europe Auschwitz-Birkenau 1940 - 1945."

 

La Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas proclamó oficialmente que se designe el 27 de enero el Día Internacional de Conmemoración en Memoria de las Víctimas del Holocausto. Se conmemora la liberación por las tropas soviéticas del campo de concentración y exterminio nazi de Auschwitz-Birkenau cuando fue liberado por el ejército soviético el 27 de enero de 1945, hoy hace 75 años.

 

La placa conmemorativa a la entrada del campo de exterminio dice: "Por siempre deja que este lugar sea un llanto de desamparo, una advertencia a la humanidad, donde los nazis asesinaron alrededor de 1 millón y medio de hombres, mujeres y niños, en su mayoría judíos de distintos países de Europa. Auschwitz-Birkenau 1940 - 1945".

La Floralis Genérica es una escultura metálica situada en la Plaza de las Naciones Unidas, Avenida Figueroa Alcorta, de la Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires, obsequiada a dicha ciudad por el arquitecto argentino Eduardo Catalano.

 

Una de las características de la flor es un sistema eléctrico que abre y cierra automáticamente los pétalos dependiendo de la hora del día. Durante la noche, la flor se cierra emanando de su interior un resplandor rojo para renacer abierta en la mañana del día siguiente.

On our way to see Floralis Genérica, we passed this dog walker outside the fence of Plaza de las Naciones Unidas (United Nations Park).

 

Who was looking for shade, dogs, man or both ?

 

Professional dog walkers or Paseadores de Perros, work in the better off neighborhoods of Buenos Aires, trotting along with up to twenty dogs at a time.

 

This profession emerged after the 2001 economic crisis when citizens were struggling for new ways to make money. Today, having a professional dog walker is considered a status symbol for some Porteños (as is having a full-bred dog, despite the animal overpopulation problem).

 

Buenos Aires dog walkers are pros at leading the pack and earn comfortable salaries. The best dog walkers hook the dogs to their belt to prevent escapes, provide the pooches with plenty of exercise and — God willing — pick up the doggy’s ‘presents’ normally left on the sidewalks.

 

ALSO

People in Buenos Aires love their dogs. But many live in small apartments and don’t want theIr dogs left all day in the apartment without exercise, so they hire dog walkers so their dogs get exercise and fresh air while the owner works.

Situado en Battery Park, al Norte de Castle Clinton, rinde honores a los Militares que participaron en la Guerra de Corea (1950–1953). El Memorial, dedicado en 1991, fue diseñado por el artista británico Mac Adams. Se trata del primer memorial de la Guerra de Corea erigido en los Estados Unidos.

El proyecto fue seleccionado entre más de 100 propuestas. El Monumento está formado por una estela de granito negro de 15 metros de altura con la silueta de un Soldado en el centro. También conocido como “El soldado Universal,” a través de la silueta se puede ver la Estatua de la Libertad y Ellis Island.

El Monumento está diseñado para funcionar como un Reloj de Sol. Cada 27 de Julio a las 10 horas, Conmemorando el fin de la Guerra de Corea, el sol brilla a través de la cabeza del Soldado e ilumina la placa conmemorativa instalada en el suelo a los pies de la Estatua.

La base del Monumento está decorada con las banderas de los países que participaron en la misión de Naciones Unidas. En los bloques de la plaza hay inscripciones con el número de muertos, heridos y desaparecidos en acción de cada uno de los 22 Países que participaron en la Guerra.

Located in Battery Park, north of Castle Clinton, honors the soldiers who participated in the Korean War (1950-1953). The memorial, dedicated in 1991, was designed by British artist Mac Adams. This is the first memorial erected the Korean War in the United States.

The project was selected from over 100 proposals. The Monument consists of a trail of black granite of 15 meters high with the silhouette of a Soldier in the middle. Also it is known as "The Universal Soldier," through the silhouette you can see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

The Monument is designed to function as a sundial. Every July 27 at 10 am, marking the end of the Korean War, the Sun shines through the soldier's head and illuminates the commemorative plaque installed on the floor at the foot of the Statue.

The base of the Monument is decorated with the flags of the Countries participating in the UN mission. In blocks of the square is inscribed with the number of dead, wounded and missing in action from each of the 22 Countries that participated in the War.

The sculpture was designed to move, closing its petals in the evening and opening them in the morning.

 

The sculpture is located in the center of a park of four acres of wooded boundaries, surrounded by paths that get closer and provide different perspectives of the monument, and placed above a reflecting pool, which apart from fulfilling its aesthetic function, protects it. It represents a large flower made of stainless steel with aluminum skeleton and reinforced concrete, which looks at the sky, extending to its six petals. It weighs eighteen tons and is 23 meters high.

Floralis Generica (Plaza de las Naciones Unidas, Av. Figueroa Alcorta e Austria) Gigantesca escultura em forma de flor, construída inteiramente em aço e alumínio. Graças a um sofisticado sistema, as "pétalas" ficam mais abertas durante o dia e vão fechando à medida que vai anoitecendo.

The sculpture moves closing its petals in the evening and opening them in the morning.

The sculpture is located in the center of a park of four acres of wooded boundaries, surrounded by paths that get closer and provide different perspectives of the monument, and placed above a reflecting pool, which apart from fulfilling its aesthetic function, protects it. It represents a large flower made of stainless steel with aluminum skeleton and reinforced concrete, which looks at the sky, extending to it its six petals. Weighs eighteen tons and is 23 meters high.

One of the characteristics of the flower is an electrical system that automatically opens and closes the petals depending on the time of the day. At night the flower closes, emanating a red glow from inside, and reopens ("...is reborn...") the following morning. This mechanism also closes the flower if strong winds blow.

It opens every morning at 8 and closes at sunset, on a schedule that changes according to season. When its petals were inaugurated, they didn't close due to technical problems which were solved two months later.

There are four special nights in which the petals are open: May 25, September 21, December 24 and December 31.

According to Eduardo Catalano, the author, Floralis "means belonging to the flora and therefore the flowers", and Genérica "from the concept of "gender" and indicates that it represents all the flowers in the world".

Measurements

Petals closed: 26 meters
