The first major program under the auspices of the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh, established in 1980, was a Yom HaShoah commemoration. Throughout its 40 year history, the Center has held the commemoration every year thereafter, making it the cornerstone our yearly programming. In keeping with our 2020-2021 program theme of “40 Years of the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh”, this year’s commemoration will include photographs and mementos of the many commemorations the Center has held over the past 40 years.
Yom HaShoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day, is the day set aside to remember the approximately six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust.
The 2021 Yom HaShoah program is underwritten by Agnes Rocher and Family, in memory of her husband George. This year’s program is also sponsored by Highmark and PNC.
