Hillel Welcomes former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak

Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 in News.

On Sunday, April 7th, Vanderbilt Hillel, together with Vanderbilt and Nashville community members, gathered to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day.  In attendance was former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, with his wife Nili, preceding his appearance at the IMPACT Symposium  The ceremony included the lighting 7 candles, 6 for each of the 6 million Jews murdered at the hands of the Nazis, and a seventh candle to remember the non-Jewish victims and heroes that assisted and hid those persecuted by the Nazis.  Emotions were high as stories of Holocaust victims were read during the candle lighting.  The ceremony concluded with the air raid siren heard in Israel on Holocaust Memorial Day there.
