Yom Hashoah Commemoration

Wednesday, April 27, 6:45 pm

Congregation Beth El. Masks are required.

Holocaust survivor, Dr. Al Munzer, is this year’s guest speaker. Born in the Netherlands in 1941, Munzer and his two older sisters were entrusted to two different Gentile families for their protection when their parents sensed peril.

At war’s end, Munzer and his mother were the only survivors from their family.

As one of the youngest Jewish survivors of the Holocaust, Munzer shares his story, and his memories, which are created mainly through photographs and his mother’s shared history, as a volunteer at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Also at Yom Hashoah, student winners of the Holocaust Commission’s annual Elie Wiesel competitions and recipients of the Commission’s Excellence in Education awards will be honored and recognized.

Special awards will also be presented to distinguished Holocaust educators.
