Today marks Yom Hashoah on the Jewish calendar when we remember the annihilation of 6 million Jewish men, women and children in the Holocaust.

Last night, the Jewish Community Council of Victoria  held its annual commemoration evening at Monash University's Robert Blackwood Hall. Over 1000 people attended the evening, commemorating 70 years on, with survivor testimonies, candle lighting by child survivors and school choirs. Rabbi Philip Heilbrunn OAM  led the gathering in Yizkor, the memorial prayer, and Gary Samowitz spoke about the sacred task of the the third and fourth generation to carry the lessons forward and to not ever be bystanders.

Never Again...
