Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) Commemoration
We invite you to commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day by attending our virtual community-wide program. You can register at www.bit.ly/BuffaloYomHaShoah2021.
The events theme is Ldor Vador-From Generation to Generation, and will highlight the emerging role of the children and grandchildren of our Buffalo Survivors as they are called to light the 6 candles commemorating the 6 million Jewish victims.
The Keynote Speaker will be James (Jim) A. Klein, President of the American Benefits Council and son of Holocaust Survivor Gerda Weissmann-Klein and the late Kurt Klein. Gerda was 15-years-old when Nazi Germany invaded the city of Bielitz, Poland in September 1939. In her memoir, All But My Life, she shares her experiences of losing family and friends, of life in concentration camps, of the death march and of liberation in 1945 by an American soldier named Kurt Klein, who later became her husband. Gerda and Kurt Klein resettled in Buffalo in 1946, where they were able to build a family and raise their three children.
