Those who lost their lives in the Holocaust will be honoured at the Victoria Jewish Cemetery next month.

The event will be held April 16 at 1 p.m. as part of Yom Hashoah or Holocaust Remembrance Day.

The theme this year is “Reflections Across Generations.”

Arlette Baker, who survived the Holocaust, and Claire Sicherman, a descendant of survivors, will share their stories.

The event will also include prayers, reflections and music, and everyone is welcome to attend.
