Join the Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance on January 27 from 6 to 7 p.m. as we bring light to the world in remembrance of a dark period of our past. The Museum will commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day with a candlelight vigil at the Museum, 211 N. Record Street in downtown Dallas.
January 27 marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp. In 2005, the United Nations General Assembly designated January 27 as the International Holocaust Remembrance Day (IHRD), an annual day of commemoration to honor the victims of the Holocaust.
Those wishing to participate in a brief candlelight ceremony commemorating IHRD will gather in the Museum starting at 6 p.m. Bring your own Yahrzeit (candle), or we will provide an electric candle for you. At 6:30, we will process to the site of our future Museum (at the corner of Houston Street and Pacific Avenue) for a brief memorial. The event is free and open to the public. Families are welcome.
The Museum will offer free tours to attendees starting at 4 p.m.
