Memorial of the Madrid Train Bombing of 2004

Following the Madrid train bombings on March 11, 2004, the European Commission proposed this day as a European Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Terrorism.

The day aims to remind that the battle against terrorism requires a global team effort.

The EU adopted the proposal to allocate one day a year to commemorate terrorism that occurred in the past, its victims and fight against organized crime.
