Dear All,  

 

On behalf of the Jewish History Association of South Wales, I wish to invite you to a talk for the Holocaust Memorial Day on 27 January at 14:00 GMT. 

 

We have been researching the lives of people listed on the Holocaust Memorial Tablet in Cardiff Reform Synagogue. This Tablet commemorates relatives of the Congregation who were murdered during The Holocaust, but whose final resting places are unknown. There are 102 names in total, and we have been fortunate enough to find information on all but one of them.

 

We feel it is important that these individuals are not just names on a board, but that they are recalled as fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers; they had families and jobs and communities. We feel that the whole of their lives should be remembered and celebrated, not just the manner of their deaths.

 

For many of the volunteers doing the research, it has been both a rewarding and very emotional experience.

 

To mark Holocaust Memorial Day, three volunteers will be sharing their experiences with you in our first ever webinar at 14:00 GMT on 27 January 2021.

 

You can register here for the event:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

 

With kind regards,
