Join us for our annual Holocaust Memorial Day event to remember the millions murdered in the Holocaust and killed under Nazi regime. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda in which 70% of the Tutsi population and 30% of the Pygmy Batwa population was murdered in the span of 100 days.
Kindertransport survivors Ann and Bob Kirk and survivor of the Genocide of the Tutsi in Rwanda Eric Murangwa will give their testimonies. There will then be a Q&A session where you will have the opportunity to ask any questions.
Our event will conclude with the lighting of our yahrzeit (memorial) candle, led by the Mayor of Camden.
The event will be BSL interpreted by Peter Abraham. Please let us know if you have any additional access needs.
