The B’nai B’rith World Center in Jerusalem and the Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF) are set to hold a joint Holocaust commemoration ceremony on April 19, Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom Hashoa).
Every year the ceremony is dedicated to commemorating the heroism of Jews who rescued fellow Jews during the years of torment in Europe and by doing so resisted the Nazi murder machine.
Some 200 Border Patrol Cadets – who will provide an honor guard – and 200 high school students will participate together with Jewish rescuers and survivors. The ceremony will take place at the Martyr’s Forest “Scroll of Fire” Plaza, at 10 am on Thursday.
To mark the 80th anniversary of the founding of “Aliyat Hanoar” (Youth Aliya) this year’s ceremony will mark the heroism of two outstanding rescuers: Recha Freier and Josef Itai.
