The Kirtland Air Force Base Holocaust Remembrance Committee will host the annual Remembrance Ceremony at 10 a.m. April 17 at the Base Chapel. This event is open to everyone with base access. The theme is "Who will be their legacy?" Two Holocaust survivors, Werner Gellert and Shoshana Dubman, will tell their stories. The Holocaust is one of many large genocides this world has experienced. It is important to learn and remember what others have gone through, to ensure history does not repeat itself. The local community will also be involved, including the Holocaust and Intolerance Museum of New Mexico, the Jewish Federation of New Mexico, Sandia Base Elementary School and the Sandia High School JROTC.
