2016 Yom HaShoah Commemoration

El Paso Holocaust Museum & Study Center will present its annual Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Days of Remembrance) Commemoration on Sunday, May 1, 2016. The program will begin at 2:00pm and will be held at Congregation B’Nai Zion, 805 Cherry Hill Lane. This moving ceremony memorializes the victims of the Holocaust and honors those who survived. The theme of this year’s ceremony is “Light from Darkness,” and special guest speaker, Professor Asher Matathias of New York, will share his remarkable story of Holocaust survival as a young boy in Greece. There is no charge to attend this event and all are welcome.

Featured Survivor Testimony

We are so very fortunate to have a substantial video archive of stories by local El Paso residents who were Holocaust Survivors. Each week we will feature a different survivor and one of their amazing video stories. We encourage everyone to take just a few moments to watch these amazing videos.

This is Agnes (Klein) Schaechner, she was born in 1930 in Debrecen, Hungary to an Orthodox Jewish family. Here is a short video excerpt of her discussing her family’s arrival at Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. You can read her bio and see more of her video testimonies here.
