Montgomery College hosts its Annual Holocaust Commemoration on Tuesday evening, March 27, 2018 in Theatre Arts Arena on the Rockville Campus. The Commemoration starts promptly, with lights down, at 6:30 p.m. Kosher refreshments are offered beforehand, starting at 6 p.m.

This year's Commemoration features witness testimony by Holocaust survivor, Josiane Traum. The solemm event involves dozens of MC students in speaking or supportive roles. Local Holocaust survivors will join in a candle-lighting ceremony and MC student musicians, under the direction of Dr. Dawn Avery, will perform. The Portraits of Life: Holocaust Survivors of Montgomery College photo collection will be on display. Learn more about Josiane's story by visiting the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum website:

The commemoration is a part of the Paul Peck Humanities Institute's ongoing commitment to teach the Holocaust; we've hosted this event each year (save one) since 1998. We welcome friends from our broader community including students and faculty from area schools. Faculty, please contact us to reserve a block of seats for your students.

Please RSVP, contact Ms. Mary Ruthann Shrewsbury (240) 567-7417,
