Yom Ha’Shoah – Holocaust Memorial Service

 — Apr. 30, 200630 avril 2006

The annual Holocaust Memorial Service will be held Sunday, April 30th at 1:30 p.m. Hosted by the Congregation Agudas Israel at 715 McKinnon Ave., Saskatoon. This year, the keynote speaker is Philip Weiss.

Born in 1922 in Drohobycz, Poland, Philip, along with his parents, his brother and sister, were first placed in a ghetto, then separated from his family. Philip was imprisoned in a succession of five concentration camps and finally liberated by the Americans in 1945. His whole family survived the war. Very few Polish Jewish families were as lucky…

Philip Weiss has made it his life’s work to testify to history by bearing personal witness to the devastation of the Holocaust. In all of his work, he has promoted the values of tolerance and respect for all other groups — humane values that might prevent us, here or anywhere else from descending into similar darkness.

Please attend the 2006 Holocaust Memorial and hear Philip Weiss tell this very important story.
