About The Event
Yom HaShoah, also called Holocaust Remembrance Day, commemorates the lives of the Jewish
people who died in the Holocaust of World War II. The name comes from the Hebrew word 'shoah', which means 'whirlwind'. Yom HaShoah was established in Israel in 1959. It falls on the 27th of the Jewish month of Nissan, a date chosen because it is the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. This year, Yom HaShoah falls on April 28.
The Medford Library will have two museum poster exhibits honoring victims of the Holocaust on display:
Early Warning Signs exhibit from United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
“In the pivotal year before Nazi Germany invaded Poland and launched World War II, intervention could have saved many lives. Citizens and countries responded in different ways to the events of 1938.
What lessons do their actions hold for us today? “
Keeping the Memory Alive from Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Museum in Israel
“This original exhibition showcases 12 designers – many of whom hold no personal connection to the Holocaust- who have chosen to recognize the importance of Holocaust education and keeping the memory of the Holocaust alive in today's public discourse across the globe.”
