Tennessee State Day of Remembrance Ceremony 2013

April 30th, 2013

Survivors, families, friends and supporters gathered together on April 8, 2013 to commemorate the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust as well as the millions of other victims of Nazi persecution. The ceremony was held in the State capitol. Thoughtful reflections on the meaning of the day, coinciding with the national day of observance established by Congress in 1980, were made by Lt. Governor, Ron Ramsey and Speaker of the House Beth Harwell. The observance, “Never Again: “Heeding the Warning Signs”” included reflections written and read by Ian Murray and Jordan Brasher from Middle Tennessee State University, Jonathan Mathews from Dyersburg Middle School, and Oleg Stakus from Cleveland High School.
