Over 400 community members joined local Holocaust Survivors and their families to support the importance of remembering the Holocaust and its many lessons at the Third Annual March of Remembrance in support of the JCRC’s Goodwin Holocaust Museum & Education Center (GHMEC). Participants walked from the Federation Annex at 1721 Springdale Rd., across from the Bethel Church, whose members showed their support by interrupting their Sunday services to hold up signs in support of Israel and promoting the importance of Holocaust education. Arriving at the Jewish Community Campus, the walkers heard Keynote Speaker Charlotte Bonelli, who spoke eloquently about how one person can make a difference when she told the story of Luzie Hatch saving her family from the horrors of the Holocaust. Pictured at the program were (from left), Renee Siegel, GHMEC Steering Committee chair-elect; Julia Roberts, JCRC vice president and co-chair of the March of Remembrance; Carol Orwitz, GHMEC Steering Committee chair; Charlotte Bonelli, guest speaker; Betty Adler, March co-chair; Helen Kirschbaum, GHMEC director; and David Snyder, JCRC executive director.
