On Sunday, May 5, we mourned the loss of the 6 million Jews murdered during the Holocaust and honored our incredible survivors at the Museum’s annual Yom HaShoah commemoration. With a heavy heart, we remembered those survivors we lost in the past year: Jack Belzacki Bell, Ted Bernstein, Rosa Hirsch Blum, Ida Gertzenshteyn, Tibor Grunberger, Ralph Hockley, Doris Markowitz, Friedel Hess Marx, Dr. Liliane Grozinger Richman, and Nicolay Safir. May their memories be for a blessing.

Special thanks to the Museum’s Junior Board members who shared the stories of local survivors of the Holocaust in Hungary, which began eighty years ago on March 19, 1944 with the invasion of Nazi Germany.

We also extend our thanks to Temple Shalom for offering their sanctuary for our commemoration, the Temple Shalom Choir for their beautiful and touching music, and members of the Temple Shalom Brotherhood for volunteering throughout the evening.

Today, Holocaust distortion and denial are more prevalent than ever. At the Museum, we have a duty to share survivor testimonies with future generations, to remember the Holocaust and combat the spread of antisemitism. We are thankful for our survivors, their children, grandchildren, and great-children – and generations to come – who continue to share their experiences.
