Gathering Pays Tribute To Those Died, Survived The Holocaust

MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) – South Floridians will gather Sunday evening at the Holocaust Memorial on Miami Beach to remember its victims and honor its survivors.

In addition to the candle lighting ceremony, there will be presentations by Holocaust survivor and Holocaust Memorial Chair Andrew Hall and by Fred Rosenkoff, a US Army veteran who was held in the Mauthausen Concentration Camp as a prisoner of war.

The remembrance will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Holocaust Memorial of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, located in the 1900 block of Meridian Avenue.

The memorial’s museum will host a presentation of eight paintings by Belgian artist and Holocaust victim Carol Deutsch, who painted biblical illustrations in 1940s Belgium in defiance of the Nazi regime that eventually killed him, according to the website of Yad Vashem, the Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem that owns the paintings.
