The Washington State Holocaust Education Resource Center will host two Holocaust Remembrance Day programs on April 27. Both are open to the community.
The first is from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Stroum Jewish Community Center on Mercer Island which will include a candle lighting and memorial service with a performance by students from the Seattle Hebrew Academy, and comments and music with Rabbi Jim Mirel and Rivy Poupko Kletenik.
Also on Sunday, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., at Kane Hall on the University of Washington campus in Seattle, Holocaust survivor Josh Gortler, author David Laskin, and Dr. Daniel Chirot will speak on the topics of family and memory.
The mission of the Washington State Holocaust Education Resource Center is to inspire teaching and learning for humanity in the schools and communities of this region through the study of the Holocaust.
