The Museum of Jewish Heritage is committed to creating meaningful opportunities for diverse communities to gather in remembrance and commemoration of the Holocaust.
Yom HaShoah is Holocaust Remembrance Day. It coincides with the 27th of Nissan (on the Hebrew calendar) to mark the beginning of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943, when Jewish resistance fighters defied the Nazis and fought for freedom and dignity.
Each year, the Museum presents nearly 20 remembrance events in the weeks surrounding Yom HaShoah. Some of the most impactful moments are ones in which Museum visitors meet with and hear from Holocaust survivors—allowing them to learn and connect with history on a human level.
