STORYLINE:

Marking the International Day of Remembrance and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism, UN chief António Guterres paid respect to all those lost or harmed through terrorist attacks around the world, and paid tribute to the “extraordinary work of those victims and survivors who have resolved to use their experiences to bring about change.”

In a pre-recorded message, UN Secretary-General António Guterres welcomed the launch of the Legacy Project, which is helping their testimonies be heard around the world.

Guterres concluded, “Let us all commit to support victims and survivors, to amplify their voices, to work together to ensure that the lives taken and changed by terrorism are never forgotten. And to build a better future for us all.”
The General Assembly, in its resolution 72/165 (2017), proclaimed 21 August as the
International Day of Remembrance of and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism. The main
focus of the International Day is to honour, remember and pay tribute to the victims of
terrorism by standing in solidarity and promoting and protecting their human rights and
fundamental freedoms.

This year will mark the sixth commemoration of the International Day under the overarching theme of “LEGACY: Finding Hope and Building a Peaceful Future”. The theme recognizes the way victims and survivors use their experiences to create meaningful change.

To mark the day, the United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism (UNOCT) will launch the “Legacy Project”, a documentary gallery on Instagram featuring victims and survivors of terrorism from across the world who share their stories. The Legacy Project seeks to inspire others and to pay tribute to those whose lives have been lost or forever transformed by terrorism, and to reach out to new generations to deepen and transform their understanding of the long-lasting impact of terrorism.
