Turning Memory Into Action

Join Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust for its annual Yom HaShoah Commemoration. We will remember those who perished, honor those who survived, and mark the 75th anniversary of liberation and the end of the Holocaust. As we look back, we will also look forward and discuss the meaning of “never again” and ways we can take action to make it a reality. This year’s virtual event will feature dynamic speakers, music, and the opportunity to join in remembrance as a community. Register for the zoom event here https://bit.ly/2yZCyOH.
