Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh Yom HaShoah commemoration
April 18 , 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Registration is now open for the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh’s annual Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) program – and the first in-person commemoration since 2019. Join them as they honor survivors, liberators, veterans, Righteous Among the Nations, and their descendants – with a particular focus on stories and faces of heroism and resilience local to the Pittsburgh region. This year’s program will feature a film by Chatham University students, focused on the question: what does Holocaust remembrance mean? Live music originally written by composers who were killed, persecuted, or suppressed during the Shoah will be performed at this program by Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster David McCarroll, PSO members Dylan Naroff and Tatjana Mead Chamis, and professional cellist Angela Park. 7 p.m. hcofpgh.org/events
