Holocaust Remembrance Day Event

May 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In Hebrew, Holocaust Remembrance Day is called Yom Hashoah. In the United States, Days of Remembrance runs from the Sunday before Yom Hashoah through the following Sunday (April 28–May 5 this year).

The UMaine event will correspond with national and international events, and remarks will be given.

The theme of the Holocaust remembrance and education activities this year is “Holocaust Remembrance: Demand and Defend Your Human Rights.” This theme encourages youth to learn from the lessons of the Holocaust, act against discrimination and defend democratic values in their communities.
