Remembering the six million, the rescuers and liberators
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 the Jewish community stands with the local survivors and remember the families they lost. Also honored are the courageous rescuers and liberators whose heroism continues to inspire many.
This year’s program will feature a performance of “I Remember,” a series of excerpts from Anne Frank’s diary set to music, performed by Nina Fine. Other program highlights include a survivor led candle lighting, responsive reading and presentation of awards for the Creative Arts Contest.
The family-friendly event will be held at Congregation Ohev Shalom, 613 Concourse Pkwy S., in Maitland, on Sunday, April 23 at 4 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
