Holocaust Memorial Day
Hundreds of members of our community gather each year at the Monument to the Six Million Jewish Martyrs at 16th Street and the Parkway to observe Holocaust Memorial Day.

Philadelphia was one of the first American cities to conduct a public ceremony and to erect a monument in memory of the six million Jews who perished in the Shoah.

This moving and meaningful event also provides an opportunity to honor the Holocaust survivors living in our community, and to share the stories of those who perished and those who survived with our young people through the Dorothy Freedman Memorial Conversation with a Survivor program, for middle and high school students.
