Urkullu attends the opening of a columbarium in Elgoibar to "honour the memory and dignify the example of those who gave their lives in defence of democracy and freedom"
The Lehendakari, Iñigo Urkullu, opened the Columbario de la Dignidad (Columbarium of Dignity) which houses the remains of 27 people. This space will serve to "keep and honour their memory and pay tribute to their example" said the Lehendakari, after explaining that many of them "gave their lives in defence of democracy and freedom". The Columbario de la Dignidad is located near the cemetery of Olaso in Elgoibar.
The event was attended by about a hundred people, which included family members, historical associations, chroniclers of the Basque Country and representatives of the municipalities in which the remains that have not been identified were exhumed, as well as representatives of various Basque institutions.
