Holocaust Remembrance Week Continues at the Hillel Center
COLUMBIA - The Hillel Center showed the movie "Sometimes In April," featuring Idris Elba, Wednesday night as a part of Holocaust Remembrance Week. The movie is about the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Organizers wanted to connect the modern day genocide to the Holocaust.
Hillel Center Director Brian Mitchell said he didn't want the people in the community to ever forget what happened in the Holocaust. "Not only did it affect the Jewish population but there were a lot of other Christian people and others who were killed as well," Stewart said.
Holocaust Remembrance Week will wrap up with "Songs for the Unsung" - Christian Rescuers of Jews during Holocaust - Thursday night at 7 pm and a Holocaust Remembrance Themed Shabbat Services/Dinner on Friday at 6 pm.
