Shoah means Holocaust

Hamilton’s annual Yom HaShoah commemoration will have an additional, lasting feature this year.

The local Shoah Remembrance Committee has created a stand-up banner bearing the names of Hamilton residents’ family members who died in the Holocaust. It will serve as a permanent remembrance, but its unique design allows names to be added as residents move to Hamilton or come forward with names.
