Day of Remembrance Ceremony
Tuesday, March 8, 2016
Please make plans to join us for the annual Tennessee Holocaust Day of Remembrance,  Tuesday, March 8, 2016 at the Capitol in the House Chamber at 11am, hosted by the Tennessee Holocaust Commission.
This year's theme, Choosing to Act: The Story of a Righteous American Soldier, will examine the story of a World War II veteran, Master Sergeant Roddie Edmonds, from Knoxville as told by his son Chris Edmonds. The ceremony will also include the recitation of the traditional Jewish prayer of remembrance for those who died, and the recognition of the 2016 Belz-Lipman Holocaust Educator of the Year Awards. 
Let all generations remember so that it never happens again
