Annual yom hashoah program
Each year the St. Louis Kaplan Feldman Holocaust Museum organizes and presents the community-wide Yom HaShoah Program, commemorating the Holocaust. The event takes place at a different house of worship each year and attracts between 600 and 1000 attendees.
This project includes the recorded and video- taped testimony of several hundred St. Louis area Holocaust survivors. The mission of this project is to gather as many of these recording of first-hand accounts of Holocaust history as possible. Many of these testimonies are featured in the Museum’s permanent Holocaust exhibition.
