Yom HaShoah Service + Denial Film Screening
Hosted By: Jewish Center of the Hamptons
Remember the millions of Jewish men, women, and children, as well as countless others, whose lives were taken during the Shoah, one of the darkest times of human history. Yom HaShoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day, teaches us to remember and honor not only the millions of lives lost, but the bravery and strength of those who survived such senseless acts of brutality.
Jewish Center of the Hamptons will mark the day with a brief memorial service, followed by a screening of the award-winning film, Denial. The film chronicles the the Irving v Penguin Books Ltd trial, in which Deborah Lipstadt, a Holocaust scholar, was sued by Holocaust denier David Irving for libel.
We invite you to pick up a yellow Yahrzeit candle to light in memory of those whose lives were tragically cut short. The yellow wax reminds us of the yellow arm bands that Jews were forced to wear.
May their memories forever be for a blessing.
