“We want a memorial which will tell our tradition, how we died, and why, and how to prevent future massacres, something that will arouse people, something with an expression, something that will make sure our dear ones have not died in vain.”

 Join the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center, the Mayerson Jewish Community Center, and Jewish Family Service for this year’s Yom HaShoah Commemoration: Remembering the Past, Standing Up to Antisemitism and Hate Today, to remember and mourn the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and to honor the survivors.  

It is simply not enough to remember, but it is vital that we ensure the lessons of the Holocaust inspire action today. Who will stand up to antisemitism? Who will continue to fight against the hatred that led to the murder of the six million? What examples are there for future generations to follow and how will the third and fourth generations tell their families stories?

Featured speakers include: Dr. Michael Meyer, the Adolph S. Ochs Professor of Jewish History Emeritus, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion; and Kevin Aldridge, Opinion Editor of the Cincinnati Enquirer; as well as descendants of Holocaust survivors. In addition, the program includes a moving candle-lighting ceremony and music.

Join us on Sunday, May 1, at the Mayerson JCC, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. in-person or via Zoom livestream.
