Carrying on the Legacy: Holocaust Remembrance Day Program
April 17 • 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Join the SJCC and the Holocaust Center for Humanity for a meaningful Yom Hashoah program of remembrance and inspiration with Holocaust survivor Agi Day who survived the Holocaust as a young child hiding with a Catholic family in Hungary. The program will include opening remarks by Dee Simon, CEO of the Holocaust Center for Humanity, and a candle-lighting ceremony with descendants of survivors. Attendees, both virtual and in person, are encouraged to light candles to remember and honor the six million Jewish people, and millions of non-Jewish people, who were killed in the Holocaust. On this day, we honor the past, share stories to carry on the legacy, and educate for the future.
Attendees can also explore the Holocaust Center’s new temporary exhibit, “Memories Unboxed: Rare Photos From Our Archives.” which includes a photo of Agi Day. The exhibit is on display at the Holocaust Center March 12-May 28.
This event is free and open to all. Registration required for in-person attendance. Light refreshments will be served. Program and exhibit are recommended for grade 6 and up.
