ABC40 Honor Roll – Students Commemorate Holocaust Victims

LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WGGB ) – Students at Heritage Academy recognized “Remembrance Day for the Holocaust and Heroism.” Sixth grade students organized the assembly to commemorate the tragic event.

The gathering included poetry readings and a rendition of the Israeli National Anthem. The ceremony finished with the customary lighting of six candles.

Each candle represents one million lives that were lost during the Holocaust.
