Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day

Thursday, April 15, 2010
04:00 PM - 09:00 PM

Known colloquially in Hebrew as Yom HaShoah and in English as Holocaust Remembrance Day, this is observed this year on April 11 as a day of commemoration for who perished in the Holocaust, as a result of the actions carried out by Nazi Germany and its accessories, and for the resistance in that period. This sensitive memorial program will illuminate the past law responsible for the slaughter of over 11 million people, and explore paths to justice for the victims of other genocides and human rights violations wherever they are found. The Jewish Law Student Association will host testimonials by survivors as well as a screening of the film Blessed is the March with a Q & A by director Roberta Grossman

Presented by the Jewish Law Student Association
