A Special International Holocaust Remembrance Day


On 27 January 2022, at 19:00 (EST), Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center, the Canadian Society for Yad Vashem, the Azrieli Foundation and the Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre will commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day with a special virtual program.

This year’s event will feature a poignant candle-lighting ceremony presented by Holocaust survivors and a tribute to survivors Max Eisen, Rose Lipszyc and Eva Olsson, who were recently appointed to the Order of Canada. Also participating are Canada’s Special Envoy on Preserving Holocaust Remembrance and Combatting Antisemitism, the Honourable Irwin Cotler, and Rabbi Baruch Frydman-Kohl, in honour of his recent appointment to the Order of Canada, who will recite Kaddish.

Join us for this moving program as we continue to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive, in Canada and beyond. It is more critical than ever.
