Description

Everyone Has a Name

Join us for a special community event commemorating Yom HaShoah.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Father Patrick Desbois

Father Desbois is an internationally-renowned human rights activist who has devoted his life to researching the Holocaust, fighting antisemitism, and furthering relations between Catholics and Jews. He has discovered the unmarked graves of over 1.5 million Jews who died in the Shoah, and works to reveal their identities to ensure that nobody’s name is forgotten.

A portion of sales from Father Desbois’ book The Holocaust by Bullets: A Priest’s Journey to Uncover the Truth Behind the Murder of 1.5 Million Jews will be donated to Holocaust education.

4:30 pm: Reading of the Names (Prior to the event—to honor victims of the Shoah, please submit their names here: https://forms.gle/GMog64cAX3mQPUX98)

Please note: We encourage you to bring photos of family members who survived or died in the Holocaust to display in a special community art project.
