Wednesday, April 10

Join us for this free annual program which pays homage to survivors of the Holocaust and assures that their stories are not forgotten. This year’s guest speaker is Aaron Elster, a child survivor of the Sokolow Ghetto in Poland. Elster has noted, “We are the last of the survivors and we have an obligation to tell the younger generations of the atrocities that humans are able to inflict on others.”
