Holocaust Memorial Day with Survivor Eva Kor
Tuesday, April 10, 7 p.m.
Regents Hall – Burpee Center
Rockford University’s Forum Series is partnering with the Jewish Federation of Rockford for a 2018 Yom Hashoah Memorial Observance program. Our featured speaker is Eva Mozes Kor, a survivor of the Holocaust, a forgiveness advocate, and a revered public speaker. With the driving message of “never give up” in mind, she has emerged through a life filled with trauma as a brilliant example of the power of the human spirit to overcome. Kor is the recipient of the 2017 Sachem award, the highest honor in the state of Indiana. The program also will include brief remarks from leaders of Rockford’s Jewish community, a time for prayer, and a candle lighting ceremony. All are welcome.
