Sitka residents gathered in Totem Square to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Yom HaShoah (KCAW photo/Rachel Waldholz)
Monday, April 28th, was Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Yom HaShoah. About thirty people gathered in Sitka’s Totem Square in a light rain as St. Michael’s Cathedral tolled its bells. Residents paid tribute to the victims of the Holocaust, but also remembered more recent genocides, in Cambodia, Rwanda, and Bosnia — and spoke about the struggle to keep the vow that came out of the ashes of World War II: never again.
KCAW’s Rachel Waldholz was there, and sent this audio postcard, featuring the voices of Sitka residents Toby Campbell, Elliot Bruhl, Annabel Lund and Phil Burdick.
