With the new year upon us, Holocaust Memorial Day is fast approaching.
I wish to invite you to a talk, which will take place on 27 January at 14:00, organised by the Jewish History Association of South Wales.
They have been researching the lives of people listed on the Holocaust Memorial Tablet in Cardiff Reform Synagogue. This Tablet commemorates relatives of the Congregation who were murdered during The Holocaust, but whose final resting places are unknown. There are 102 names in total, and the JHASW have been fortunate enough to find information on all but one of them.
It is important that these individuals are not just names on a board, but that they are recalled as fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers; they had families and jobs and communities. The whole of their lives should be remembered and celebrated, not just the manner of their deaths.
For many of the volunteers doing the research, it has been both a rewarding and very emotional experience.
To mark Holocaust Memorial Day, three volunteers will be sharing their experiences with you in the webinar.
