A Holocaust Memorial Day Walk on the Streets of the Former Warsaw Ghetto: Remembrance, Reflection and Hope

The Jewish Federation of Greater Oklahoma City is pleased to be a co-sponsor of this special program.

In commemoration of Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), you are invited to join us on a live, online ZOOM walking tour in the space where the Warsaw Ghetto once existed and stops at three (3) special locations as narrated by attorney and Holocaust educator, Michael H. Traison (left). The Germans murdered over 400,000 Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto, including those who died of starvation, typhus and disease. 

Following this live pilgrimage, the students from the Creative Arts Academy of the Quad Cities in Davenport, Iowa, will perform a Holocaust-themed dance. 

Following the dance and from Chicago, world famous Cantor, Alberto Mizrahi will chant El Malei Rachamim, the Jewish prayer for the souls of the dead. The program will conclude from Israel with world renowned Cantor, Israel Rand leading all of us around the globe in the singing of Hatikvah, the 19th century Jewish poem and National Anthem of Israel which tells of the 2,000 year hope of the Jewish people to return to their homeland, Israel. 

This program is free to attend, but pre-registration is required via this Zoom link.
