Immaculee Mukakalisa, a survivor of the Rwandan genocide, lights a candle at Spokane's Temple Beth Shalom on Sunday for Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. The observance, attended by about 400 people, was not only a commemoration of the Holocaust, but also of more recent acts of genocide in Rwanda, Sudan and elsewhere in the world.

The English government authorized the entry of unaccompanied Jewish children, who were placed into foster care. The rest of his family also moved to England, separately, in 1939, including his father, who was released from a concentration camp in December 1938. He eventually moved to the United States, where he currently resides in Seattle. - YOUNG KWAK
