FACULTY NEWS: Dr. Marilyn Harran to speak at "Our Survivors: Their Lives and Legacies" on May 1

Sixty years ago this month, Israel’s Knesset established Yom HaShoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day, to be the 27th of Nissan. And while commemorations around the world honor the survivors of one of the largest genocides in world history every year, this year, as the number of survivors dwindles, it is more important than ever to honor them before it is too late.
The official commemoration in San Diego, “Our Survivors: Their Lives and Legacies,” will this year be at 1:30 p.m. May 1 at the Lawrence Family JCC. The afternoon program, which has been held for more than three decades, always draws a crowd, last year filling the parking lot of the JCC with more than 700 community members; this year, attendance is expected to be greater than in years past.

Keynote speaker Marilyn Harran will be there to speak about the importance of a commemoration event and continuing education for future generations.
