Everyone Has a Name

Every Person Has a Name

Every Person Has a Name will be held on the steps of Pasadena City Hall on Saturday, January 26 – Sunday, January 27, 2019. This event coincides with the UN International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the anniversary of liberation of the Auschwitz death camp. The program will begin with a commemoration ceremony at 7:00 pm and it will feature speeches from elected officials, including Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek, LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger (invited), Congresswoman Judy Chu, State Senator Anthony Portantino, Assemblymember Chris Holden (invited), local clergy, as well as performances by the Jewish Federation’s Jewish Youth Orchestra and Kol HaEmek, our community choir.

The commemoration ceremony will be immediately followed by a 24-hour vigil of reading the names of those who perished during the Holocaust.
