January 10, 2022 [St. Petersburg, FL] — The Florida Holocaust Museum will observe International Holocaust Remembrance Day by providing free admission to Museum visitors and a virtual “Lunch and Learn” discussion featuring Holocaust Survivor Hani (Helen) Kahan.
“On International Holocaust Remembrance Day we remember and honor the memory of the six million Jews who were murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators. As we witness a rise in global antisemitism and intolerance, it is more important than ever to listen to or read the stories of Holocaust survivors, reflect on their experiences, and retell their stories,” said Erin Blankenship, The FHM’s Interim Executive Director.
The United Nations General Assembly has designated January 27, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. On this annual day of commemoration, the UN urges all citizens to honor the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and millions of other victims of Nazism and to develop educational programs to help prevent future genocides.
Auschwitz-Birkenau survivor Helen Kahan will recount her experience during the Holocaust live on The FHM’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/TheFHM.
Mrs. Kahan will be featured in the interactive Dimensions in TestimonySM exhibition later this year.
