This was to be the only public event marking the day, and was scheduled to take place in Barcelona’s central piazza.
“Marking the Jewish Holocaust while a Palestinian Holocaust is taking place is not right,” a local City official told Barcelona’s La Vanguardia newspaper.
If only Jews in Catalunya had told “their government” not to have gone to war with Hamas, perhaps problems like these could be avoided.
Incidentally, I have heard rumours that some British councils are also contemplating cancelling their events. Let’s see.
