Focus on Dayton at governors’s annual Holocaust event

Governor’s commemoration

Daytonians will play key roles at the 25th Annual Governor’s Holocaust Commemoration on Wednesday, May 4 at noon in the North Hall of the Statehouse in downtown Columbus.

The program will feature remarks from survivor Renate Frydman, chair of the Dayton Holocaust Committee and curator of From Prejudice to Memory, the Holocaust exhibit on permanent display at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.

Rabbi Bernard Barsky, spiritual leader of Dayton’s Beth Abraham Synagogue, will present the benediction. He will also give the opening prayer at the Ohio Senate session following the program.

During the one-hour commemoration, resolutions will be presented by Governor Bob Taft, Ohio Senate President Bill Harris, Ohio House Speaker Jon Husted, and Ohio Legislative Black Caucus President Barbara Sykes.

The Governor’s Annual Holocaust Remembrance is facilitated by Ohio Jewish Communities. The program is free and open to the public.
