On this Yom HaShoah the memory of the Lithuanian Holocaust Victims is
recorded.

In an article in the Jerusalem Post <http://tinyurl.com/ps7ca> the six
torchbearers for today's commemoration at Yad Vashem are noted.
Uri Chanoch, who has a remarkable story of survival, is one of the
torchbearers and his story is given briefly.

Also note that Yad Vashem (Jerusalem) yesterday launched a further
campaign to gather video testimonies >from Holocaust survivors in their
homes.

Survivors and their children should contact the department for gathering
testimonies at (02) 644-3752 to schedule a home visit.
