Yom HaShoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day, is the day set aside to remember the approximately six-million Jewish victims of the Holocaust. The Holocaust Center has been holding a community-wide commemoration every year since the establishment of the Center in 1980. The commemoration includes a candle-lighting ceremony. Six candles are lit in memory of the six million and two additional candles are lit in honor of the Righteous and the Liberators – – those non-Jews who risked their lives to save the lives of their Jewish friends and neighbors. The candle-lighters comprise of local survivors, community members, and lay leaders who have a connection to the year’s topic.
