Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) Commemoration Event

Sunday, May 8, 2015, 11am–12pm

Victoria Shoah Project members invite you to join them to commemorate Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), Sunday, May 8, 11am–12 noon at the Victoria Jewish Cemetery on Cedar Hill Road (south from Hillside Avenue), honouring those who perished in the Holocaust as well as recognizing the strength of survivors and the lessons to be learned for all peoples from that tragic event.

During the service, we will hear the personal story of a Holocaust survivor and hear other readings and reflections from descendants representing the second generation and third generations, Holocaust educators and community members, as well as university students of diverse backgrounds.

The tragedy of the Holocaust continues to reverberate through the generations and provides relevance for Jews and non-Jews alike in today’s world.

We hope you will be able to share in this event with us. We welcome your presence and support as we gather to remember the past and look towards a future of peace and unity.
