Event Details

A Day of Remembrance

On Monday afternoon, May 6th from 3 to 4:30 PM, the Meriden Public Library will be sponsoring a program entitled “A Day of Remembrance of the Holocaust and Other Genocides”. The event will memorialize the heroes and victims of the World War II Holocaust (Yom HaShoah) as well as the victims of other genocidal atrocities since the early 1900’s.

We will hear from guest speaker Jeff Israel, a descendant of Holocaust survivors. Also, we will light electric memorial lights for each genocide mentioned, as well as candles featuring the persecution of peoples due to their faiths, ethnicities, political views and gender non-conforming.

Funded by an endowment established by the former Temple B’nai Abraham, and administered by the Friends of the Meriden Library, the program is open to the public and free of charge. All are welcome.
