The Touro College Hans Goldschmidt Institute for Human Rights and the Holocaust will mark Holocaust Remembrance Day on April 28 with an online program called “Yom Hashoah 2022: A Day to Remember” from noon to 1:30 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.

The event will be opened by Rabbi Moshe Krupka, executive vice president of Touro University, and chaired by Professor Anne Bayefsky, director of the Touro Institute. It will feature presentations from Ambassador Asaf Zamir, Israel’s consul general in New York, and Holocaust survivor Maritza Shelley.

Zamir is Israel’s diplomatic representative to New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Delaware. He previously served as Israel’s Minister of Tourism after being elected to the Knesset in 2019 and was Deputy Mayor of Tel Aviv for 10 years.

Shelley, born in Hungary in 1928, will speak of her experiences on a death march, escaping Nazi Germans and hiding in Nazi-occupied Budapest.
