Cambridge’s Annual Commemoration of the Holocaust
Thursday, May 3, 2018 • 7:00 to 9:00 PM
Temple Beth Shalom, 8 Tremont St., Cambridge

Recalling all who perished during the Holocaust, this year’s program features an evening of music, candle lighting, and remembrance. Our guest speaker will be Newton resident Norman Berman, who was born in the Föhrenwald displaced persons camp in Germany just after the end of World War II. 

Mr. Berman came to the U.S. in 1949 as a small child with his parents, Misha and Bluma, both born in Poland. While they survived the Holocaust, they lost more than 70 members of their families. In 2009, he traveled to Eastern Europe with his daughter, visiting his parents’ birthplaces and tracing their journeys during the Holocaust. Today, he shares his parents’ stories to illustrate the dangerous consequences of silence and indifference in the face of bigotry and prejudice. 

Music will be provided by cellist Mina Kim, the Cambridge Community Chorus and A Besere Velt. Roma poetry will be shared by Margareta Matache. 

The program is free, open to all, and wheelchair accessible. It welcomes all communities of Cambridge – including children and adults and people of all faiths and traditions.
