RASPEDS Students Participate in Holocaust Remembrance Programs

Rabbi Arthur Schneier Park East Day School eighth grade students joined the United Nations International Holocaust Remembrance Service at Park East Synagogue on January 25. The program, which marked the 77th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, included remarks by His Excellency United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres and Rabbi Arthur Schneier, a Holocaust survivor, and the participation of the Diplomatic Corps and Holocaust survivors’ families.

Each student shared the name, age and photograph of a child killed in the Holocaust, illustrating the incalculable losses of each young life.

On January 27, International Holocaust Remembrance Day, eighth grade students participated in the Consulate General of Italy’s annual ceremony of the reading of the names of the Jews deported from Italy and the Italian territories.
