ARTWORK BY SUE OVERTON

In November of 2005, the United Nations passed Resolution 60/7, which established January 27th as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Resolution 60/7 urges every member nation of the U.N. to recognize and commemorate the tragedy of the Holocaust that occurred during the Second World War, to honor the memory of Holocaust victims, and to encourage the development of educational programs about Holocaust history to prevent future acts of genocide. JMU’s Madison Singers, invited artists, speakers (Holocaust survivor twins Seven Hess and Marion Ein-Lewin) and guests will mark this day with a special program featuring the poetry and music of Theresienstadt, a Nazi concentration camp and propaganda “artists’ ghetto.”
