Yom HaShoah program highlights will include: the lighting of the Six Torches in memory of the six million people, who perished in the Holocaust; a special musical presentation; remarks from Jim Barfield, author of the historical novel, Boxcars, which he will discuss, as well as Jim’s hope that teens from all backgrounds may adopt his passion for clarity on the Holocaust in such a way that throughout their lives they will hold a solid commitment to never stand for this history to be repeated. Jim’s presentation will also include an original musical composition written especially for this occasion; and greetings from the Israel Consulate to the Southeast, and the German Consulate General to the Southeast.
