The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors invites the whole community to join in commemorating Holocaust Remembrance Day, in a ceremony that includes local survivor testimonies, student presentations, music and memorial candle lighting, in the Supervisors’ Chambers. The theme this year is “Some Were Neighbors: Betrayers, Bystanders and Protectors”. A poster exhibit will be on display in the breezeway of the County Government Building during the week of the remembrance.
Free parking is available in the County C Lot, across the street from the Government Building.
This year’s sponsor is Supervisor Dave Cortese, President of the Board of Supervisors, who will present a proclamation in recognition of the remembrance. Music will be performed by cellist Peter Gelfand and pianist Diane Fisher. The program is presented by the Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley, the Jewish Community Relations Council of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin, Sonoma, Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, and the Silicon Valley Holocaust Survivors Association.
