Each year, local city councils issue Proclamations that commemorate the Holocaust and honor Holocaust victims. In very moving ceremonies, a member of the Council reads a Proclamation, followed by a candle lighting ceremony. It is crucial for everyone to support these proclamations by attending the council meetings at which the proclamation is read.

The REMEMBER Program urges to show your support of Holocaust remembrance in the community.
Charleston's 2022 Yom HaShoah Holocaust Remembrance Program will take place on Sunday, May 1st at the Charleston Holocaust Memorial in Marion Square. This year’s theme is Turning Memory to Strength.
We will join together as a community to honor our local survivors and their, descendants, remember those we lost in the Holocaust, and begin to understand the Shoah through multi-generational perspectives. Together, we will keep the memory of those senselessly murdered in the Holocaust alive. This is event is FREE and open to the public.
