Out of the darkness...we can all create light. Please join us for the 9th Annual Holocaust Day of Remembrance at Cypress College.

They were taken away from their homes, kept behind metal bars and wire fences like criminals—animals. Millions were murdered. Millions more were displaced, left without a home, without family, without much hope. 

On Yom HaShoah, and every other day of the year: we remember those who lost their lives in the Holocaust—condemned simply because of their religion; we continue to learn from those who survived; and we honor those who risked their lives, livelihoods, and families to aid the Jewish people. They show us the resilience of the human spirit; that inclusiveness and diversity are a strength and necessary priority; that there is always still hope for humanity; that in the end, we are all the same.

With these themes of survival, gratitude, hope, and inclusiveness, Cypress College holds a Yom HaShoah Day of Remembrance event each year in April, with the first one being held in 2016.

Over the past eight years that we have hosted Yom HaShoah, we witnessed testimonies of survivors, liberators and non-Jews who took great risks to save Jews during the Holocaust. We have heard stories of immense courage, unparalleled strength and deep concern for our fellow man. As a community, we have been enriched and profoundly touched by those who have shared with us. We have been captivated and we have been Blessed. For many, our lives have been transformed in extraordinary ways. One survivor who has joined us many times, 100-year-old Dr. Jacob Eisenbach says, “The only way to fight darkness, is with light”
