The Beth Am Library Supports Holocaust Remembrance

In early May, there will be two not-to-be-missed events to commemorate the Holocaust.

Wednesday, May 1, 6:00-9:00 PM: Come together with the community in observance of Yom HaShoah at the annual South Peninsula Yom HaShoah v’Hagevurah Service of Remembrance. This is always a moving experience with survivors' stories being told by local teens, candle lighting, music, displays made by local day school students and a book display of materials from the Beth Am Library. This year's theme highlights anti-Semitism leading up to the war. Beth Am has an extensive collection of both adult and children's books and DVDs. A sampling will be on display and available for check out.

Sunday, May 3, 3:00 PM: Beth Am member Anna Rubin will be speaking about her experience being hidden by a gentile seamstress and later with her grandfather in a partisan bunker. She and her grandfather were the only survivors in her family. Learn more about this event.

We hope you will join us for both events. They are bound to move you.
