The European Day of Remembrance of Victims of Terrorism was established after the Madrid attacks in 2004. It was in the European Parliament, where, by a majority vote, it was approved by the European Council. Every year since 2005, Europe remembers the victims of terrorist atrocities on this date.
Providing support to crime victims, including victims of terrorist attacks, is an important part of the European Commission’s work to address all dimensions of the terrorist threat.
The European Union has established a robust legal framework to protect victims across Europe through the European Union level compensation plan, the Victims’ Rights Directive and the Counter-Terrorism Directive.
The celebration of the European Day of Victims of Terrorism is a way of paying tribute to all the victims who have suffered aftermath or who have unfortunately lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks. Commemorating such a sad date is also a way to vindicate the relatives of these people who have lost their loved ones or who are still dealing with them and who, despite having survived the attacks, have been left with some type of disability.
