About the Events
Through The Music of Resistance and Survival, we remember the victims of the Holocaust. The Augusta Jewish Museum and the Jewish Community Center and Federation of Augusta invite you to Adas Yeshurun Synagogue at 935 Johns Rd to hear and experience this concert that will be performed by Professor Laurence Sherr, Kennesaw University and accompanied by Rabbi David Sirull, and local artists. The Holocaust was the systematic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews including 1.5 million children, by the Nazi regime in Germany, aided by its allies and collaborators. It was genocide on an unprecedented scale, with the aim of annihilating the Jewish people. Racist ideology was used to justify the persecution and murder not only of Jews, but many additional millions, like the Sinti and Roma, Slavic people, or people with disabilities. Many risked their lives to save their neighbors and countrymen, but many more stood by and watched in silence. An essential lesson from the Holocaust is the responsibility to stand up to injustice, hatred, and bigotry against any group of people. Never Forget, Never Again. This is a free event and no registration is needed.
