76th Anniversary Babiy Yar Commemoration Event

Sunday, October 1, 2017 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM <Add to Calendar>

This year marks the 76th anniversary of the tragedy in Babiy Yar in Kiev. While more than 2.5 million of Holocaust victims were Soviet Jews, many of the stories of the victims and survivors on the German-occupied Soviet territories have never been heard. In our own Chicago community, virtually every Russian Jewish family has a connection to these losses and a story to tell.

Please join us for a program featuring music and readings by survivors featured in the book “Never Heard-Never Forget” – a new, joint publication of Holocaust Community Services, ILHMEC and Reklama Media Group. A small reception, childrens performance, and open conversations with survivors will follow.
