Yom HaShoah 2019

Yom HaShoah 2019 - Yellow candle remembrance

For the 2019 Yom HaShoah event in Hyde Park, London, a Kitchener descendant will speak about her father’s experience of the Kitchener camp rescue.

And Stephen Nelken – a founder of the Kitchener Descendant Group – will light a candle on behalf of us all.

Thank you so much to both Kitchener descendants for representing our families and our Kitchener history at this significant event.

Do join them if you can – free tickets are available as outlined below.
