En memoria de los casi 15,000 negros haitianos y negros dominicanos que fueron
brutalmente asesinados por órdenes del tirano Rafael Leonidas Trujillo durante los ultimos meses de 1937. Y en homenaje a los dominicanos valientes que resistieron este genocidio y colaboraron clandestinamente en el rescate y la protección de sus vecinos y que continuan contribuyendo a mejorar las relaciones entre
República Dominicana y Haití. Y por el compromiso inquebrantable con la no repetición de este hecho ni de ninguna forma de violación de los derechos humanos entre estos dos pueblos.
