18 Voices: A Liberation Day Reading of Young Writers’ Diaries from the Holocaust

January 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm MST

More than one million Jewish children were killed during the Holocaust and countless others survived. Some, like Anne Frank, kept diaries in which they confided their hopes, fears, and experiences.
Join us Wednesday, Jan. 30 at 6 p.m. (8 p.m. EST) to commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day and the 76th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
The special virtual reading of excerpts from these diaries will be narrated by Liev Schreiber and the excerpts will be read by young actors and public figures.
The program is presented by the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust; the Center for Holocaust Education of the East Valley JCC is a distribution partner.
By giving voice to the written words of some of the Nazis’ youngest victims, we will commemorate their suffering and learn from their courageous and resilient spirits.
