Holocaust Survivor Talk: Holocaust Survivor Day
|Date||Thu, Jun 24, 1:00pm - 2:00pm|
Holocaust Museum LA invites you to join them and Jewish communities and organizations across the world as they honor Holocaust survivors and celebrate the inaugural Holocaust Survivor Day on June 24th.
Holocaust survivors symbolize the depth and resilience of the Jewish spirit and deserve to be honored and celebrated. They witnessed the worst that humankind is capable of and maintained their humanity, moral conduct, and belief in the sanctity of human life despite their experiences. Survivors were displaced, persecuted, discriminated against, tortured, and dehumanized; they coped and lived through extreme difficulties and survived. As stewards of their memories, we strive to act with honor, human decency, and respect. Holocaust Museum LA teaches the survivors' stories as a powerful antidote to the rising tide of bigotry, hatred, and antisemitism.
Each community will decide how best to honor, celebrate, and support its survivors, and at 8PM in your respective time zone, we ask that you say the name of a survivor.
On June 24, at 1PM CST, join Holocaust Museum LA in stewarding this important history as they pay tribute to Holocaust Museum LA’s dedicated, inspiring, and resilient survivor community. In a virtual program, a panel of Holocaust survivors will share their remarkable stories of survival as well as what motivates them to continue to speak out against bigotry, hatred, and antisemitism.
