Klerksdorp Yom Hashoah celebrates courage and resilience

  • CommunityKlerksdorp (002)
In a moving ceremony, Klerksdorp community members commemorated Yom HaShoah on 1 May with readings about dehumanisation, and candle lighting in remembrance of the victims.

The occasion also celebrated Jewish resilience, rebirth and survival, and remembered the courage of heroes like Irena Sendler, who in the 1940s, was head of the children's section of Żegota, the Polish Council to Aid Jews, and was active in rescuing Jews, particularly by smuggling children out of the Warsaw Ghetto.

One of the younger community members read a quote from the diary of a holocaust victim. El Maleh Rachamim (the Prayer for the Departed) was recited, and national anthems were sung.
