Sunday – April 15, 2018
Congregation B’Nai Zion
805 Cherry Hill Ln.
During this annual commemoration, El Paso Holocaust survivors, their children and grandchildren will share their memories and poignant stories of the Holocaust. Eleven memorial candles will be lit – one for every million lives stolen by the Nazi regime. The theme for EPHM’s 2018 Yom HaShoah is “In Our Own Words.” Through the powerful words of local Holocaust survivors, their lives and legacies will be memorialized. On this day, it is not only imperative to remember and reflect on the history and impact of the Holocaust but also to respond, to act in the face of inhumanity and injustice today. El Paso Holocaust Museum invites the community to join in memorializing the tragedy of the Holocaust, and honoring the survivors and their descendants, while also taking a stand against bigotry and intolerance. There is no charge to attend, and all are invited.
Yom HaShoah has been generously underwritten by the Jewish Federation of Greater El Paso.
