Every year, at the Annual Gathering of Remembrance, the Museum brings thousands of New Yorkers together to say with one collective voice: we will never forget. Delivered by a city with one of the world’s largest communities of Holocaust survivors, the tribute has power that echoes across generations.
Please join us at this year’s virtual gathering in observance of Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day). The program will feature music, remarks from Holocaust survivors and young people, and a candle-lighting ceremony. The program will also feature reflections from Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff; U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer; Elisha Wiesel, son of the late Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel; Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Holocaust survivor and Museum Trustee; and other public figures.
Together, we will honor the memory of those who perished at the hands of evil and pay tribute to those who survived and have made a better world for us all.
