4-29-11: Yom HaShoah

April 29, 2011 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

This Sunday is Yom HaShoah, the remembrance of those who died in the Holocaust.

Baltimore is the home of the Red Cross Holocaust and War Victims Tracing Center. Over 20 years, the center has processed about 45,000 requests from families looking for information about loved ones who went missing during World War II.

Sheilah talks to Sue Bornemann, who has worked at the center for six years, and was a volunteer before that, and Pikesville resident Bertha Schwarz, who has an active trace with the center.

Hear Bertha Schwarz tell the entire story of how she, her mother, and her sisters evaded the Nazis after her father and grandparents were sent to Auschwitz (21:55): There are several Yom HaShoah-related events in the area over the next few days, including some sponsored by the Baltimore Jewish Council, the JCC of Greater Baltimore, and The Associated.
