Survivor testimonies, plus a candle lighting ceremony, were among the poignant tributes paid during a Holocaust memorial presented by Congregation AAA Sfard in Canarsie.

The Yom Hashoah commemoration recalled the horrors of one of history’s darkest periods with a commemorative program attended by area dignitaries, veterans and neighbors at the place of worship, 1385 East 94th Street.

Survivors offered first hand accounts of terrors sustained in concentration camps and joined mourners in marking the annual observance by lighting memorial candles.
