Yom Hashoah Service
April 28th is a very important day. As the sun sets that Monday evening, Fort Wayne’s Yom Hashoah, the Annual Day of Remembrance will begin. Join your friends, neighbors, and our community at the Campus@5200, 5200 Old Mill Road, at 7:00 p.m.

We must remember…and we must remind people everywhere – that evil happens because of intolerance and indifference.

As citizens of a great democracy, we must understand the importance of seeing that high moral standards prevail. As the years pass and the eyewitnesses to that terrible time are gone…we are faced with the question: Who will remember?

Our Commemoration this year will feature Chris Nicola, Speleologist & Cave Specialist, co-author of “The Secret of Priest’s Grotto” and the documentary, “No Place on Earth”, which tells the story of how a group of Jews survived the Holocaust by living in a cave for over a year.

The Most Reverend Kevin C. Rhoades, Bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend, will be presenting a special honor to a member of our community, Danuta Renk-Milulska. In July, 2013, Danuta was recognized in a ceremony at the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center in Chicago, as Righteous Among the Nations for the role she and her parents played in rescuing Jews during the war. It is the highest honor that can be bestowed by the country of Israel.
