Yom Hashoah Remembrance

The Greater Dayton Yom Hashoah Remembrance will be held at 4 p.m., Sunday, April 24 at Temple Israel, 130 Riverside Dr., Dayton. With the theme Children of the Holocaust, this year’s program will feature second-generation survivor Judy Rosenthal of Frankfurt, Germany.

Rosenthal works as a translator for Holocaust-related institutions and memorials in Germany and has researched her own family history extensively. It was that research that led her to find her cousin Bev Farnbacher in Dayton and to make the film she will show at the event.

The observance is sponsored by the Yom Hashoah Committee, a project of the Jewish Federation’s Jewish Community Relations Council and the Holocaust Committee.

The program will also be livestreamed. To register, go to jewishdayton.org/events.
