Approximately 700 local people gathered at United Hebrew Congregation on Sunday, April 27 for the annual Yom HaShoah commemoration. The event, put on by the Holocaust Museum and Learning Center and dedicated to remembering the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust, featured testimony from local Holocaust survivors, Marie Watnicka Cuttler, Saul Rozen and Miriam Kenisberg Poster. The commemoration also featured a candle-lighting ceremony, an opportunity for survivors to memorialize their loved ones, liturgical readings and prayers, and a procession of Torah scrolls that survived the Holocaust.
