City & county join Holon’s Int’l Holocaust Remembrance ceremony

Representatives of Dayton, Montgomery County, and the Dayton Region-Israel Trade Alliance joined Holon, Israel’s virtual ceremony for International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Jan 27. Dayton and Holon are Sister Cities.

Also joining the program were representatives of Holon’s other Sister Cities: Hann Münden, Germany; Mitte, Berlin, Germany; Suresnes, France; Dongguan, China; and Andong, South Korea. A choir of Holocaust survivors with Bet Lyhiot in Holon sang, and Auschwitz survivor Aliza Bunchel shared her testimony.

“Never again, despite the growing hatred and extremism around the world,” Holon Mayor Moti Sasson told participants. “Never again, despite the antisemitism that tries to raise its head again and again. Never again!”
