This year’s Yom Hashoah program is being hosted by Congregation Knesseth Israel.  It will be on Sunday, April 23 at 7pm in the evening.  

Our guest speakers will be Bernard and Henry Schanzer.  Bernard and Henry Schanzer, identical twins who were born in Liege, Belgium, fled to France with their parents when the Germans invaded Belgium in May of 1940.  Their father was deported to Auschwitz and their mother encountered many life-threatening situations.  Thanks to her fortitude, and the help of two wonderful Christian woman, the twins were hidden as Gentiles.
