We invite you to participate in an annual Names Reading Commemoration at The Florida Holocaust Museum on Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), on Tuesday, April 21, 2020. From 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, individuals from our surrounding communities will read aloud names of Holocaust victims in 5-minute intervals. The Museum will once again offer free admission all day.
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 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.
If you wish to participate in this commemoration and the reading of names, please select an available time slot for your reading by registering here on our Bookwhen page. It is important that you include all requested information during your registration – your full name, business/organization affiliation, and title, as this information will be used to announce you during the reading. The reading of names will be live-streamed on our Facebook page the entire day. You will receive a reminder email confirmation from us in early April with additional information, including a list of victims’ names.
In order to allow as many readers at possible, we ask that only one family member or one member of your organization/company register for reading. You may read together as a group from the pages provided, but we are unable to reserve individual time slots for each member of your party.
Should you require assistance registering, please contact our RSVP line at: 727-820-0100 x301 or email our Community Outreach & Programs Manager, Faune Walker, at: email@example.com.
We thank you for your continuing support of The Florida Holocaust Museum and for taking time to reflect with us on April 21st.
