“To Listen to a Witness Is to Become a Witness: Why We Speak” will be the theme for the annual Yom HaShoah commemoration on Sunday, May 5, at 4 pm.

The Holocaust Remembrance Day event will feature eyewitness accounts of the Shoah from survivors and witnesses. Featured speakers will be Rachel Miller, who survived as a hidden child in France, and Mendel Rosenberg, who survived several concentration camps. The program will also include a traditional candle-lighting service, Holocaust Torah procession, liturgical readings, and prayers.

Join the community-wide commemoration at Congregation Shaare Emeth, 11645 Ladue Road.

Music will be performed by Stephanie Hunt and Mischa and Tova Braitberg of Elegant Ensembles. Mischa and Tova are the son and granddaughter of survivors Szyfra and Gregor Braitberg (of blessed memory.) Additional music by Samantha Seigel. The program will be interpreted in sign language.
