Our Holocaust Remembrance will take place at 3:30 pm on Sunday, April 15th, 2018

This year’s commemoration will feature a multi-media presentation created by Professor Robert Katz of the University of Maine at Augusta, Were the House Still Standing. This weaves together the testimony of sixteen Holocaust survivors and liberators, using video, large-format photography, audio, and text to ensure that their memories will endure and be shared with future generations. Professor Katz will present the film.

The service will be in the Science Lecture Theatre, SN2109, in the southwest corner of the Science Building at Memorial University. The Science Building is the large square yellow building https://www.myatlascms.com/map/?id=219&mrkIid=139852 in the middle of south campus). If you enter through the entrance on courtyard with the sundial, between the Arts, Music and Henrietta Harvey Buildings, the auditorium will be on your left.

Parking will be available in lot 15B, adjacent to the Music School, and lot 1A, in front of the Arts Building.

Robert Katz will be in St. John’s from April 13-16th. You will have an opportunity to meet him at our regular Shabbat service on Friday, April 13th (details to follow) and at other times during the weekend.

Nb. Robert Katz will present a longer version of Were the House Still Standing at the Nexus Centre, SN 4022 on Friday, Sept. 13th from 1-3 pm.
