The Yom Hashoah community-wide Holocaust Memorial Program held Sunday, April 23 at 6:30 p.m. at the New Orleans Jewish Community Center, 5342 St. Charles Avenue. The memorial program remembers and honors local survivors while educating the public about the horrors of the Nazi regime and teaching the importance of tolerance. Holocaust survivors play an integral role in planning the program. 

This event will remember and honor New Orleans Holocaust Survivors, recognize students from the Donald R. Mintz Youth Leadership Mission of the ADL, honor an outstanding local Educator and learn from Holocaust survivor, Martin Weiss.

Additionally, the 12th annual Holocaust Educator of the Year award will be presented. This award honors local teachers who do an outstanding job integrating Holocaust education into their curriculum. High school delegates selected for the Anti-Defamation League Donald R. Mintz Youth Leadership Mission to Washington D.C., also will be recognized. 

A dessert reception will follow the memorial program. Commemorative photographs and memorabilia from the war will be on display in the JCC lobby.
