El Paso Holocaust Museum & Study Center will present its annual Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Days of Remembrance) Commemoration. This moving ceremony memorializes the victims of the Holocaust and honors those who survived. The theme of this year’s ceremony is “Light from Darkness,” and special guest speaker, Professor Asher Matathias of New York, will share his remarkable story of Holocaust survival as a child in Greece.
Yom HaShoah is commemorated nationwide as organizations, groups, and individuals gather to remember the events of the Holocaust, to light a candle for the millions of lives lost, and to celebrate the survivors and their families. Each year, El Paso Holocaust Museum, together with the El Paso community, honors local Holocaust survivors and their loved ones through this special program. There is no charge to attend this event and all are welcome.
