POSTPONED: ADL’s 39th Annual Governor’s Holocaust Remembrance Program
April 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
THE 39th ANNUAL ADL GOVERNOR’S HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE PROGRAM HAS BEEN POSTPONED.
With the continued spread of COVID-19, evolving guidelines for large community gatherings and out of respect for our community’s health and safety – especially that of our honored Survivor community – ADL has made the difficult decision to postpone the 39th Annual Governor’s Holocaust Remembrance Program (originally scheduled for Thursday, April 23). We are planning to reschedule this event later in the year. We appreciate your understanding in this unique time and look forward to updating you with further details in the coming months.
In the meantime, here are some things you can do to support Holocaust education and awareness:
- Encourage your state legislators to support House bill 1336 – Holocaust and Genocide Studies in Public Schools. ADL has worked with an extensive network of coalition partners to introduce the bill, which will promote Holocaust and genocide education and awareness in Colorado schools. The bill comes at a critical time as fewer Holocaust survivors are able to share their first-person accounts and as Americans’ knowledge of the Holocaust decreases.
- Visit the Mountain States Regional website on April 21, Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) for special educational content, including a video message from five Colorado Holocaust survivors and more.
- Echoes and Reflections, a partnership of ADL, the USC Shoah Foundation and Yad Vashem, offers lesson plans for students, webinars for teachers, and a host of other materials for those involved with Holocaust education.
- Visit the US Holocaust Memorial Museum website for suggestions as to how to observe Days of Remembrance, this year from April 19-26.
ADL thanks the following generous sponsors (as of 3/26/20) for their continuing support:
