Day of Remembrance ~ “In memory of those who perished during the Nazi reign of terror.”
Author Joanie Holtzer Schirm
The Holocaust Center invites individuals and families from throughout the community to join us on April 27 for our Yom HaShoah program. The Center hosts the observance to remember the lives of the six million Jews who died during the Holocaust, and to honor the Survivors, Liberators and Rescuers who keep those memories alive.
In addition to the keynote presentation, the event will include candle-lighting, traditional music, and responsive readings in memory of Hitler’s victims and in honor of the Survivors, Rescuers and Liberators who ensure that the tragedy of the Holocaust will never be forgotten. There will also be an awards ceremony for the winners of the Yom HaShoah Student Creative Arts contest. .
