As New York’s Holocaust memorial museum, the responsibility of the Museum of Jewish Heritage — A Living Memorial to the Holocaust has never been more important.
Every year, at New York’s Annual Gathering of Remembrance, we come together as a community to say: we will never forget. Please join us for a virtual presentation on Sunday, April 19, to honor the memory of those who perished at the hands of evil, and to pay tribute to those who survived and have made a better world for us all.
More details to come.
