The International Day of Holocaust Remembrance
The Holocaust Center invites individuals and families from throughout the community to join us for our annual Yom HaShoah commemorative program. The Center hosts the observance each year to remember the lives of the six million Jews who died during the Holocaust and to honor the Survivors.
Each year, the Holocaust Center hosts Yom HaShoah, A Day of Remembrance, to remember the six million Jews who perished during the Holocaust. On this special day, we stand with our local survivors and remember the families they lost. We also honor the brave liberators whose heroism continues to inspire us today.
This year’s program will feature Winter Park High School Students in a dramatic performance of excerpts from Holly Mandelkern’s Beneath White Stars. Other program highlights include a candle lighting and responsive reading.
We invite you to stand with us as we celebrate the lives of our local Survivors and say a prayer in remembrance of those they lost. This family-friendly event is free and open to the public.
This event is one of several being held to commemorate Yom HaShoah:
Sunday, April 28: Documentary Film: Shanghai Ghetto
Thursday, May 2: Conversation with the Three Wise Guys
Sunday, May 5: Yoga For Remembrance with Dana Kaplan
