Description

Martyrs' Day is one of the saddest days on the Eritrean calendar. Most places of entertainment and cafes are closed on that day. Memorial Day in Eritrea is not about hot dogs or mattress sales. Bereavement itself affects every Eritrean family of a fallen hero on that day and throughout the year. The main memorial ceremony is held in Nakfa, the former stronghold where many of Eritrea's fallen heroes are buried, but many bereaved families gather in every town where there is a Martyrs' Cemetery to remember their loved ones.
