The Stories Live On

With the atrocities more than 60 years behind them, the generation of Holocaust survivors is rapidly diminishing. But just because the stories will stop being told in the first person doesn't mean that they will stop being told. That's a good thing. Sharing stories leads to awareness. Each year, the Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance presents an educational event on Yom Hashoah, aka Holocaust Remembrance Day. This year's lecture is "The Holocaust: Does it Defy Words." The Yom Hashoah event takes place at 6:30 p.m. Sunday at Temple Emanu-El, 8500 Hillcrest Road. Admission is free.

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
