(US) USHMM Days of Remembrance - Yom Hashoah #announcements #events #holocaust #usa

Jan Meisels Allen

The other day when I posted about commemoration services for Yom Hashoah,  I mentioned that there was nothing on the United State Holocaust Memorial Museum’s (USHMM) website that would be affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. That has changed.


On April 21, 2020 at 11 AM ET The USHMM is having a virtual commemoration to reaffirm their commitment to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive.  It will take place on the Museum’s Facebook Live channel. You do not need a Facebook account to participate. You will receive an email shortly before our programming begins on April 21, at 11 a.m. ET, reminding you to watch.
