MONROE – For many Holocaust survivors, liberation from Nazi concentration camps was only the beginning of their stories of survival, and the survival of their stories.

That will be the theme of the Henry Ricklis Holocaust Memorial Committee’s annual program in observance of Yom HaShoah – Holocaust Remembrance Day.

While the official Holocaust Remembrance Day was Tuesday, the program is scheduled for May 7 due to the availability of the performing arts center at Monroe Township High School.

Program director Nina Wolff said the lighting of yahrzeit candles will take place at 1 p.m., followed at 1:30 by the program, called “Beyond the Holocaust: The Remaking of Lives.”
