The Birmingham Holocaust Education Center (BHEC) has partnered with Temple Beth-El for the 2017 community-wide commemoration of Yom HaShoah, (Holocaust Remembrance Day), “Stories Remembered and Retold: The Stories of Deceased Holocaust Survivors as Told by their Local Descendants.”
Speakers include Kelly Campbell, The Honorable Debra Goldstein, Eli Pinhas and Deborah Wiatrak. Each will briefly relate the story of family members who survived the Holocaust. This event will be the first time their family stories are told in public.
Rabbis from Temple Emanu-El and Temple Beth-El will participate, along with Cantor Jessica Roskin, Cantor Michael Horwitz and the Temple Emanu-El Quartet. Music will include traditional Hebrew prayers along with “Hymn of the Partisans,” and “Sorrow/Mariposa,” a song based on a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay.
