Yom Hashoah Commemoration: Besa - The Promise

Our annual Yom Hashoah commemoration will feature the viewing of Besa: The Promise, a film that weaves the first-person accounts of the Albanian Muslim who rescued Jews during the Holocaust along with the story of Rexhap Hoxha, a Muslim-Albania who wanted to fulfill the promise his father made to a Jewish family by returning a set of Judaic books they left behind. Johanna Neumman, who was protected by the Albanian community during the Holocaust and is part of the film The Besa, will give the keyour keynote address. The evening will also feature the presentation of the Abe Oster Holocaust Remembrance Award to a high school student who creates a work of art that conveys the continuing relevance of the Holocaust in the 21st century. Additionally, there will be a candle-lighting ceremony honoring all survivors and their families.
