Exactly 50 years after prof. Shoshani (Chouchani) passed away. On Sunday the 15th of January 2018, the Jewish community in Uruguay held a ceremony (Hazkara or Yortzeit) at the Jewish cemetery of La Paz (north to Montevideo) where prof Shoshani’s grave stands.

Here is an article about this ceremony that took place in the rain, in the national newspaper of Uruguay El Pais. They also mention the participation of filmmaker Michael Grynszpan who travelled from Israel to Uruguay to attend the event.
