Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) Commemoration

May 5 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Elizabeth will attend an annual remembrance of Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), which will take place on Sunday, May 5th, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM, at the Victoria Jewish Cemetery on Cedar Hill Road (south from Hillside Ave.). Those who perished in the Holocaust will be commemorated not as victims or statistics, but as the unique individuals that they were, while also honouring the strength and resilience of survivors and their families.

Attendees will hear the stories of survivors now buried in the cemetery, as well as perspectives from students involved in the University of Victoria’s iWitness Holocaust Field School. Mr. Peter Nadler will reflect on how the current rise of antisemitism heightens the commemoration of the Shoah more than ever.

Please note this event is open the public.
