To have a chance to meet a survivor of one of the most tragic events in all of human history, the Holocaust, is becoming a rarer occurrence. Yet in recognition of the International Day of Remembrance of the Holocaust, Spokane’s Temple Beth Shalom gives Spokane an opportunity to connect with one of the region’s remaining survivors. A presentation by Stephen Adler, a Jewish child survivor of the Holocaust by means of Kindertransport, will take place during the service. This is to be followed by a candle lighting ceremony and a children’s candle procession, honoring those whose lives were taken far too early.
