The Victoria Shoah Project invites you to attend Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) commemoration on Sunday, April 16 at 1 pm - 2:00 PM, at the Victoria Jewish Cemetery on Cedar Hill Road (south from Hillside Ave.). Those who perished in the Holocaust will be remembered as real individuals, as we also honour the strength and resilience of survivors.
This year’s theme is “Reflections Across Generations.” Arlette Baker, who survived the Shoah as a young child, will share her story, and we’ll hear the reflections of Claire Sicherman, a descendant of survivors.
The commemoration will include music and songs from that era to move us and remind us of the flourishing cultures in so many locations that were tragically upended by the Shoah. Memorial prayers and reflections will help us to think about how we can act today. We invite you to share in this event with us. We welcome your presence and support as we gather to remember the past and look towards a future of peace and unity.
