The Federal Inter-Agency Holocaust Remembrance Committee will hold its 24th Annual Holocaust Remembrance Program at the Lincoln Theatre, located at 1215 U Street, NW, Washington, DC, on April 26, 2017 from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm.
This year’s theme, “Evade and Endure: Survivors’ Stories, Lessons Learned,” will present eyewitness testimony from the Holocaust, the systematic, state-sponsored murder of six million Jews by Nazi Germany and its collaborators. The Holocaust was part of the “Final Solution” – the Nazi plan to annihilate all nine million Jews in Europe. Five million non-Jews from such groups as Roma, Communists, homosexuals, and the disabled were also murdered. This year, we are honored to feature two survivors of the Holocaust:

Roman Kent, born in Lodz, Poland, survived the Lodz Ghetto, Auschwitz, and other concentration camps.
Renée Fink, born in Holland, went into hiding at age four with a Catholic family until after World War II ended.
The Washington Post’s Ruth Marcus will serve as moderator.
The program is open to the public and admission is free. For more information, please visit: http://holocaustremembrance.org/
The Holocaust survivors, rescuers, liberators, resisters or witnesses or relatives of these individuals remind us of what can happen if prejudice, hate, and intolerance against any individual or group of people are not challenged by each one of us.
