The Program: Yom Hashoah Day-Holocaust Memorial Day Commemoration
Each year JGSCV commemorates Yom Hashoah Day [Holocaust Memorial Day] with a special program. This year, JSGCV members and friends will give presentations on different aspects of the holocaust from their personal history. Join JGSCV for this commemoration.
Ruth Drobman a holocaust survivor, will discuss Kristalnacht, the Kindertransport and how she fled Berlin in 1939 on the last train out to go to Sweden. Ruth will also talk about how they had to hide her father before they got out.
Werner Frank, a holocaust survivor, will report on the 1940 deportation of over 6,000 German Jews to Camp de Gurs, a Vichy France internment facility that became an “intermediate” step to the 1942 imposed “Final Solution” moving these incarcerated Jews –including members of Werner’s family—from Gurs to the Parisian suburb of Drancy, an assembly point for deportation of the victims to the Auschwitz death camp.
Debbie Enenstein, a DP survivor, will discuss what were the DP [Displaced Persons] Camps? Life in an Austrian Displaced Persons Camp through the eyes of a little girl, her journey and her return visit.
Indy Rebhun and Jeff Spector will discuss their trip with the March of the Living in 2012. The March of the Living program explored the story of the Holocaust in Poland and the rebirth of Jewish people in Israel. It included a somber Yom Hashoah march from Auschwitz to the Birkenau death camp in Poland and a joyous Independence Day march from Sabra Square to the Western Wall in Jerusalem.
