2017 Yom HaShoah Commemoration
The Okon Family Endowment Fund for Holocaust Education at the Jewish Federation is proud to partner with the Kurt and Tessye Simon Fund for Holocaust Remembrance Fund to present:
A Holocaust Remembrance Concert
Sunday, April 23 at 7:30 PM
At Temple Beth-El
The courage, hopes and fears of Anne Frank form the wording of a full choral piece to be presented by the South Bend Chamber Singers and soprano Elizabeth Schleicher in commemoration of Yom HaShoah. In the work called Annelies, British poet, author and librettist Melanie Challenger used words from Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl to illustrate the tragic story of just one of millions of Holocaust victims.
