In place of the traditional communal gathering at Robert Blackwood Hall, we invite individuals and families to bring memorial candles to their living rooms and collectively remember Yom Hashoah with two important events on Monday 20 April.

Together We Remember [RADIO BROADCAST @ 5:15-6pm / J-Air (87.8FM) ]

The Jewish Holocaust Centre, with support from J-Air, is putting together a very special community broadcast, including a powerful survivor testimony and a poignant candle-lighting featuring Holocaust survivors sharing messages from their isolation.

As the sun sets, heralding the start of Yom Hashoah, let us remember, together.

Turning Memory into Action [VIRTUAL GATHERING @ 6-6.45pm via ZOOM]

LaunchPad are hosting the first-ever virtual Yom HaShoah gathering to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day, in partnership with the Jewish Holocaust Centre.

This is an interactive event where we will be exploring the preservation of memory and the ways in which we can be custodians of our family stories. Listen to three generations exploring the impact of the Holocaust. Towards the end of the event, we will each light a candle together as a community.

Jayne Josem, JHC Museum Director said: “Coronavirus is impacting on us in many significant ways, but it will not stop our unique community, with its survivors and descendants, from coming together to remember the Holocaust on Yom Hashoah. In our own homes, it is more important than ever, to find ways to connect communally. Bring a candle and join us for these special events, as together we memorialise the 6 million Jewish victims”.
