Holocaust Remembrance Day: Lives, Legacies, and Reflections

The American Red Cross is dedicated to supporting Holocaust survivors reconnect with and learn the fate of their loved ones through the Restoring Family Links program. We also want to ensure that their legacies continue to be known by future generations. To accomplish this goal, Restoring Family Links is hosting Yom HasHoah, the Day of Remembrance, to encourage interaction between the Holocaust survivor community and youth.

Leading up to the event, youth were encouraged to interact with the survivor community through interviews and group discussions focused on legacy issues. Through these activities, participants learned about the lives of survivors after the Holocaust – how the event shaped them, their hopes for the future, the message they want future generations to remember. You can view these videos by visiting the Restoring Family Links blog.

Join us on Thursday April 16th from 4:00-6:00 PM EST for a special online panel discussion featuring a youth panel discussion on the importance of honoring the legacy of those who died during the Holocaust and those who survived, and how to ensure that legacy lives on in future generations. Event details, including Google Hangout information, is available on the registration page.
