Voices of Hope requests your presence at the 8th Annual Greater Hartford International Holocaust Remembrance Day commemorating the January 1945 Liberation of Auschwitz.
The United Nations General Assembly designated January 27—the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau—as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. On this annual day of commemoration, the UN urges every member state to honor the victims of the Nazi era and to develop educational programs to help prevent future genocides.
Program includes a dairy brunch, presentation of the 2018 Chesed Award to Ben Cooper, Holocaust liberator, recognition of local Holocaust survivros, and musical selections by Classical Magnet student Victoria Brooks, Hazzan Sanford Cohn and granddaughter of survivor, Hannah Rose Berkowitz.
The 2018 Chesed Award recipient is Ben Cooper. The Award is bestowed on individuals who demonstrate exemplary "acts of loving kindness" that find expression in the mission of Voices of Hope.
