Holocaust memorials in Montreal - #holocaust #poland #ukraine, #belarus #poland #lithuania #holocaust

Gary Perlman

The Baron de Hirsch cemetery in Montreal has 17 Holocaust memorials: JGS-Montreal.org/link/BdH-Memorials. These have been photographed and over 1900 names of the fallen with local (Montreal) ties have been entered by volunteers: Gary Perlman, Cindy Hershon, Daniel Zackon.

Yom HaShoah begins at sunset on Monday, April 20, 2020, so this seemed like a good time to share the information. Note that I am not knowledgeable on this subject; I just took the photos and organized the data entry. We hope that this information is useful to you.
