Reading & Lecture
The internationally recognized date for Holocaust Remembrance Day, Yom Hashoah in Hebrew, corresponds to the 27th day of Nisan on the Hebrew calendar. It marks the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. With the Embassy of Israel, Tokyo Holocaust Education Resource Center(Kokoro) will hold this year’s virtual event for commemoration on Tuesday, May 3.
We invite you to the online reading and lecture on the Ringelblum Archive. The Archive is one of the most impressive and unique collection of real-time testimonies, art, diaries, and letters discovered after the war from ruins of the Warsaw Ghetto. Led by historian and community leader Dr. Emanuel Ringelblum, people from various walks of life left more than 35,000 documents, which are the last testimonies of life, suffering and death of both individuals and Jewish communities of Warsaw and other cities and towns in Poland. Through our Days of Remembrance event, we seek both to commemorate this tragic history and to reflect on the lessons it holds for our lives today.
