Posted: March 30, 2018

The Shaw JCC of Akron and Jewish Community Board of Akron will remember the Holocaust on Sunday, April 15, at 7 p.m., at the Schultz Campus for Jewish Life, 750 White Pond Dr., Akron.

The Yom HaShoah Commemoration Day to Remember the Holocaust will feature testimony, words and poems by Jewish children during the Holocaust.

Ingrid Kennedy of Akron, a Holocaust survivor, will share her family’s story of survival, which began in Vienna, Austria, where she was born in 1936.

The event will include a memorial and candle-lighting ceremony. It will begin with the sounding of a siren, led by Uri Hershkovitz, Akron’s Israeli emissary.

The event is free, open to the public and suitable for middle school children and up. For more information, contact Rachel Armin Williams, Shaw JCC adult programming coordinator, at 330-835-0027.
