CLEVELAND — On January 27, the world honors Holocaust Remembrance Day, marking the day in 1945 when the Auschwitz concentration camp was liberated.

Wednesday evening the National Council of Jewish Women and the Kol Israel Foundation are hosting a panel discussion to examine the effect of the Holocaust on second and third generations, those who call Holocaust survivors their parents or grandparents.

Psychologist, writer, and filmmaker Dr. Eva Fogelman will moderate. She said it's vital that people around the world remember atrocities like the Holocaust and others that have occurred throughout our history.

"We can't forget what happened with the slaughter of Armenians, we can't forget what happened with the Native Americans, we can't forget what's happened with the African-Americans, and that has to be part of what is being taught in American schools," she said.

The panel includes two children of Holocaust survivors in Cleveland and one grandchild of a Holocaust survivor. All are board members of Kol Israel Foundation.

The virtual presentation is from 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Wednesday evening. You can register for free.
