Join us on April, 19, 2015 at 12pm in the Holocaust Memorial Park that is in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY to pay tribute to the survivors and the non-survivors of the Holocaust. It will be a ceremony of lighting candles in a memory of the 6 Millions of Jews and the thousands of others who perished during WWII. Community leaders and Holocaust survivors will be speaking about the importance of teaching our ancestral history and what to do to prevent genocide worldwide and preventing history from repeating itself.

A multi-generational group, including Holocaust survivors, families and schoolchildren, religious, political and community leaders, will assemble to observe this Annual Holocaust Memorial Day occasion with a solemn commemoration. The program will feature short marching walk next to the park, prayers, songs, a candle-lighting ceremony and other presentations, memorializing the men, women, and children, who died not only in the Holocaust, but also victims of anti-Semitism and terrorism against Jews in the recent days across the globe.

Please Note: If you have a pictures of your relatives and friends who died during Holocaust as well as pictures of victims of terrorist attacks on Jews in Israel and all over the world in post WWII era, please, submit photos to us by email at: info@stopantisemitism.org. We need victim’s first and last name, his/her age and place where he/she was born and murdered (if known). Just make a photo of your original picture with your cell phone or camera and sent it to us without any modifications.

Also, do not forget to submit your own contact information, like your phone and/or email address. Please, sent all information and pictures before March 31, 2015 in order for us to prepare posters with pictures for April 19 Annual Holocaust Memorial Event.

Please get back to us if you plan to participate in this event. Bring with you American and Israeli flags!!! Feel free to invite friends, relatives, associates, and colleagues.
Make your voice heard and join us on this important day!

The event is being sponsored by the Stop Anti-Semitism Foundation, (SASF), a recently formed 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to remembering the victims of Holocaust and bringing to light violence and injustice currently targeting religious and ethnic groups around the world. We observe that anti-Semitism, which formed a basis for the inhuman Nazi ideology, still survives today and therefore we believe in the importance of fighting tirelessly against this phenomenon.
