April 16 Is Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day

April 16, 2015

The Corning Centre joins all genocide education programs and centres across the country in remembering the Jewish Holocaust. Working together to educate new generations about the importance of being upstanders in society is vital to ensuring that communities are grounded in the understanding, acceptance and appreciation of differences, diversity and multiculturalism. The history of the Jewish Holocaust and the memories of those who survived it are full of lessons about the consequences of harbouring hatred against one another. Genocide education strives to inform and inspire generations in hopes of creating societies that state their commitment to Never Again with pride and confidence.
