Survivors, Students Observe Holocaust Remembrance Day with Plaque Dedication

About the Event
With poignant tears, wistful smiles and powerful words, about 150 local Holocaust survivors, their loved ones and students from Donna Klein Jewish Academy (DKJA) gathered with profound respect on January 27, 2017, to observe International Holocaust Remembrance Day with a program, “Remember to Remember.” Held in the Entin Holocaust Pavilion at the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, the program, “Remember to Remember,” unveiled and dedicated the new Plaques of Remembrance recently mounted in the Pavilion, that feature photos of local survivors.

The program was presented by the Child Survivors/Hidden Children of the Holocaust of Palm Beach County, in cooperation with March of the Living (MOL) and the Federation.

The tone was set with a rendition of “Eli Eli,” sung by Eva Demsky, a junior at Claire and Emanuel G. Rosenblatt High School at DKJA, an invocation from Rabbi Josh Broide, Director of the Deborah and Larry D. Silver Center for Jewish Engagement at the Federation, and a memorial candle lighting by officers of the Child Survivors/Hidden Children group. Several of the group’s board members participated in the program. Heni Galel gave a welcome and thanked the MOL, DKJA and the Federation for making possible the plaques as well as the day’s event. Zelda shared the group’s important role in the community, and Rosette Adler Goldstein read her poem, “We Are the Children.” Jack Rosenbaum, MOL Southern Region Director, served as emcee.
