Holocaust Remembrance Day
WITH REMEMBRANCE THERE IS HOPE.
2020 YOM HASHOAH
Yom HaShoah, also known as Holocaust Remembrance Day, is a day to remember the six million Jews whose lives were brutally cut short by a regime driven by hate and bent on the destruction of a people. On this day, we remember everything we lost – the passion and talent of millions who did not get the opportunity to leave their mark on the world. On this day, more than any other day, we vow once more that their memory will live on for generations to come.
We also take this opportunity to honor the Holocaust Survivors in our community. Over 40 years ago, a group of Survivors came together in Dallas to create a space with two goals: to remember loved ones murdered in the Holocaust and to educate about the lessons of the Holocaust so that it would not happen again. We would not be here, just seven months after opening the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum, without the drive and dedication of this amazing group of individuals.
More than ever, in a time when it is easy for fear and hate to take the place of compassion and kindness, we are committed to our mission to teach the history of the Holocaust and advance human rights to combat prejudice, hatred, and indifference. With antisemitism on the rise all over the world, we take this moment to come together to choose acceptance, understanding, and respect. We hope you will join us today to remember, to hope, and to pledge: Never Again.
BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE
Each year, we create a Book of Remembrance that includes the program and honors family members killed during the Holocaust as well as Survivors, Refugees, Kindertransportees, Hidden Children, Liberators, and Rescuers. Thank you to everyone who so thoughtfully submitted tributes this year!
