The commemoration will reflect the theme, Legacy: The Writing of Survivor Stories, which will illustrate the importance of Holocaust survivors sharing their stories with future generations.
This year, the commemoration will feature Christos Nicola, author of The Secret of Priest’s Grotto: A Holocaust Survival Story. The story details a team of experienced cavers that made a remarkable discovery in a remote part of the Ukraine. They discovered artifacts belonging to a Jewish family that survived the Holocaust living in the caves known as Priest’s Grotto.
The commemoration will also feature Transfer of Memory, a photographic exhibit of Holocaust survivor portraits. The exhibit is a collaboration between the JCRC and local photographer, David Sherman. Israel Defense Forces soldiers and participants from Talmud Torah of Minneapolis’ Adopt-a-survivor program will also participate in the program.
The commemoration is free of charge and open to the public. For more information, please contact the JCRC at (612) 338-7816 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Yom HaShoah Commemoration is co-sponsored by the JCRC, CHAIM, Bet Shalom Congregation, Minneapolis Jewish Federation, and United Jewish Fund and Council of St. Paul.
