Annual Westchester Countywide Yom Hashoah Holocaust Commemoration

Keeping the Memory Alive: Generation to Generation


The Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center and Westchester Jewish Council present the Annual Westchester Countywide Yom Hashoah Holocaust Commemoration each April.

This year, the event will have a keynote by a Holocaust survivor and a procession of rescued Holocaust Torah scrolls. We will be commemorating more than 11 million victims of Nazi genocide, including six million Jews.

It will be held in the beautiful Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center's Garden of Remembrance, located at 148 Martine Avenue, White Plains. See our Events page for more details.
