Speaking on Rescue

This week I will be traveling to Florida to speak at programs commemorating Yom Hashoah. Yom Hashoah is the annual day of remembrance that is dedicated to honoring the memory of 6 million Jews who were killed during the Holocaust. This year, the theme of Yom Hashoah is “Choosing to Act: Stories of Rescue.” I will be speaking on rescue and the actions of righteous gentiles during the Holocaust at Temple Emanu- El of Palm Beach on April 19, 2012 (190 North Country Road, Palm Beach, Florida), at 7:30 p.m. The theme of this year’s commemoration presents an opportunity to tell the important stories of our selfless rescuers, and to highlight the good that was done in a time of unspeakable evil.
