Bluma Goldberg, who survived the horrors and deprivations of the Nazi death camps during World War II, says she will talk about the need for understanding and tolerance when she addresses this year’s Yom Hashoah commemoration Sunday.

“People wanted to know what I went through, so I will talk about that, and also I would like to bring a message to the people,” Goldberg said Thursday.

“What you see on TV, what is going on in Africa and everywhere else, that is true. People are going through a lot of suffering, and people get killed.”

The 7 p.m. event at Tree of Life Congregation, 6719 N. Trenholm Road, is held annually to remember the 6 million Jews killed by the German Nazis during the war. The service, sponsored by Columbia’s synagogues and Jewish organizations, is open to the public. MORE.
