We invite you to participate by taking a video or photograph of yourself lighting a candle in remembrance and if you know the name of a family member killed in the Holocaust or a Holocaust survivor who has passed, please state/include their name. Upload the video or photograph to the Museum's Facebook page and use the hashtag #CandlesOfRemembrance.

While COVID-19 might keep us apart this year, please join us for a virtual commemoration as we reaffirm our commitment to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive. This year’s event features Holocaust survivors’ tributes to family members they lost, a stirring message from Benjamin Ferencz (the last living Nuremberg prosecutor), and timeless words from the late Elie Wiesel. The program will close with an opportunity for each one of us to make a personal pledge to safeguard the survivors’ legacy. In honor of the victims, we will ask you to join us in reading a name during these Days of Remembrance. Watch live on the Museum’s Facebook page.
