Cypress to Hold Second Yom HaShoah Holocaust Memorial Event
Cypress College hosts its second annual Yom HaShoah Holocaust Day of Remembrance on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 from 7-8:30 p.m. The event will include presentations by Holocaust survivors, music, dance, and photography.
The College’s event last year featured a keynote presentation from Dr. Jacob Eisenbach, a Holocaust survivor whose father, sister, and younger brother were killed by the Nazis, and whose remaining brother was killed in an anti-Semitic attack. His mother had died before the start of World War II.
Photography Department Chair Clifford Lester also presented his unique collection of Holocaust survivor portraits, accompanied by improvisational dance performed by Dance Department Coordinator Maha Afra’s students and dance company members.
