IU Holocaust Commemoration Project

70 years ago, Hitler and the Nazi party took the lives of 12 million men, women, and children, of which six million were Jewish. It is our responsibility to remember those who perished, and to ensure that such an atrocity will never occur again. On Wednesday, April 10, IU Hillel will observe Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, with the Bloomington campus to remember the lives we lost in the Holocaust, in our Jewish communities and throughout the world.
The Helene G. Simon Hillel Center at Indiana University, co-sponsoring with the Herman B Wells Library Diversity Committee, the  Lilly Library, UITS and the IU Zeta Beta Tau Beta Gamma chapter, will be holding a commemoration for Yom Hashoah. The program will include multiple exhibits, a names reading of individuals who perished in the Holocaust, a candlelight walk through campus and an interfaith service.
We are hoping to raise money for purchasing candles and for future Holocaust education. Let's never forget those who perished; your generosity is priceless.
