Diversity and Inclusion Council hosts holocaust survivor

The 332d Air Expeditionary Wing's Diversity and Inclusion Council partnered with the U.S. National Holocaust Museum to remotely host Holocaust survivor Agi Geva using a zoom connection as part of several special observance events planned to honor the Holocaust Days of Remembrance federal observance which runs from April 24 to May 1.

The U.S. Congress established the Holocaust Days of Remembrance as the nation’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust and created the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum as a permanent living memorial to the victims.

The Days of Remembrance dates change from year to year because the Israeli Parliament (Knesset) established Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom Hashoah), to be observed on the 27th day of Nisan of the Hebrew calendar. The Hebrew calendar is a lunar calendar so the date changes each year in the United States. Observances and remembrance activities occur throughout the Week of Remembrance, which runs from the Sunday before Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom Hashoah) through the following Sunday.
