Jom Hasjoa commemorartion
Sunday the 19th of April 2020, preceding the Jom Hasjoa memorial in Israel, we commemorate the 6 million Jews who were murdered during World War II. This commemoration, which will take place in the Kloosterkerk, Lange Voorhout 4 in The Hague at 4pm, will have ‘Moving forward while looking back' as a theme.
Emile Schrijver will give a speech. He is the general director of the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam and je Jewish Cultural Quarter. Musical accompaniment will be provided by chazzan Ken Gould. Students from various schools will also contribute to the gathering. An English translation of the memorial will be available at the entrance. Afterwards we will lay flowers at the Jewish Children's Memorial at the Rabbijn Maarsenplein.
Lest we forget the impact of the Second World War on The Hague, and the suffering endured by our Jewish neighbors, the Community of Churches of The Hague wishes to commemorate together with their fellow citizens. Entrance is free, registration not necessary.
