Yom HaShoah Virtual Commemoration

April 21 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Yom HaShoah Virtual Commemoration
The FHM’s GHRAM Series
April 21, 2020 online on The FHM’s Official Facebook page – facebook.com/TheFHM

 

We invite you to tune-in to The Florida Holocaust Museum’s annual Yom HaShoah Commemoration to be streamed on Facebook on Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), on Tuesday, April 21, 2020. This year’s commemoration will include a virtual reading of Holocaust Victims’ names continuously throughout the day. 

Participants from the community recorded their list of names in advance and all recordings will be shared by the Museum on April 21st.

Through our educational programs based on original artifacts, archival documents and artwork, The Florida Holocaust Museum works daily to translate the staggering statistics of genocide into individual stories. The Names Reading Commemoration is another effort to remember the victims as individual people with life histories.

Reading the names of the Jewish men, women, and children killed during the Holocaust is a symbolic yet deeply personal way of remembering these individuals. Most victims of the Holocaust don’t have graves – reciting their names allows for them to be memorialized while reminding us of their human dignity. Hearing their names offers us a chance to reflect on their lives and the events of the Holocaust while renewing our commitment to ensuring that such atrocities do not occur again.

The reading of names will be streamed on our Facebook page the entire day on April 21st. From 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, individuals from our surrounding communities will virtually read names of Holocaust victims.

We thank you for your continuing support of The Florida Holocaust Museum and for taking time to reflect with us on April 21st.

Thank you to LWP Producations for the music used in this broadcast.
