Commemorating YomHaShoah 2017 Through Testimony

Wednesday April 19, 2017
Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Yom HaShoah as it's known in Hebrew, commemorates and honors the victims and survivors of the Holocaust. This year, people around the world will remember the victims of the Holocaust April 23-24, 2017. 

Throughout the entire month of April, USC Shoah Foundation remembers the victims of genocide with testimony, educational resources and personal stories for Genocide Awareness Month.

Yom HaShoah is one of the final days of remembrance after commemorating the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, the Cambodian Genocide and Armenian Genocide throughout April.

However, you can remember and learn from the survivors of the Holocaust and other genocides all year long through eyewitness testimony preserved in the Visual History Archive. So today and every day we encourage you to engage with testimony, integrate our educational resources in your classroom and be inspired through testimony.
