JewGood Hartford Commemorates Yom Hashoah
JewGood Hartford Committee Member Devorah Donnell moderated a compelling virtual talk in May 2022 about how her cousin, Renia, and Renia’s mother survived the Holocaust with Oskar Schindler’s help. More than 80 participants listened to Devorah and her family members describe Renia’s story of tragedy, perseverance and hope, which is chronicled in Renia’s book, My Survival: A Girl on Schindler’s List. The event commemorated Holocaust Remembrance Day, a solemn day of remembrance, education and mourning for the more than six million Jews murdered by the Nazis in World War II.
