Holocaust Memorial Week events planned

April 12, 2012

The week of April 15-22 is designated as the "Days of Remembrance of Victims of the Holocaust." It is important to remember the atrocities that occurred during the Holocaust for several reasons: to honor the victims and keep their memory alive through stories of their lives, to raise awareness, to learn about our history and to keep such a thing from happening again.

The Hill AFB Holocaust Memorial Committee will host the annual Holocaust Remembrance Ceremony. The theme designated for this year is "Choosing to Act: Stories of Rescue."

The events are as follows:

  • April 17: 5K run/walk beginning at 8 a.m. at the Warrior Fitness Center
  • April 17: A film screening of "Defiance" at the Base Theater beginning at 6 p.m.
  • April 18: Memorial to be held at the Hill AFB Chapel, 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. The guest speaker for the event is former U.S. Ambassador John Price.

Military members are highly encouraged to participate. Family members and friends with base access are welcome. Civilian employees wishing to attend the event may be released for up to two hours without charge of leave as time and mission requirements permit.

For questions, call Staff Sgt. Kenneth Beach, HC president at 775-4910 or Capt. Adam Zimmer HC vice president at 775-5993. For information about the Holocaust visit: www.ushmm.org/ for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
