The City of Cambridge will present its annual Holocaust Memorial
Join us for an evening of remembrance, candle lighting and music as we recall all who perished during the Holocaust. The guest speaker is Ingrid Kisliuk. Kisliuk was eight years old in 1938 when her family was forced to flee Vienna , Austria for exile in Belgium , and then went into hiding in Brussels during the German occupation. She is the author of "Unveiled Shadows: The Witness of a Child" and "From Trauma to Trepidation: Memories transmitted by Hidden Children to the Second Generation." Music will be provided by A Besere Velt (A Better World): the Yiddish Community Chorus of the Workmen’s Circle, the Cambridge Community Chorus, and by the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School String Ensemble and Chorus. The program is free, open to all, and wheelchair accessible. It welcomes all communities of Cambridge – including children and adults and people of all faiths and traditions.
