Holocaust Remembrance Day
Later today Deborah will be participating in a Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremony in Nanaimo.
Deborah's mother Jeanne was among the over 350,000 Jewish residents of Warsaw in Poland, who were interned in the Warsaw Ghetto.
Nearly all of those people eventually died of disease or starvation or were later killed in a death camp. Jeanne is a rare witness who survived, escaped, changed her identity, and then clung to life in a prison labor camp. Holocaust Remembrance Day for this year begins at sundown tonight (Sun April 7) and Deborah Goodman will share her mothere's story at the First Unitarian Fellowship of Nanaimo. The presentation is called "Lost Threads." You can hear that conversation after the 7:30 news on Sunday morning.
