Cambridge's Annual Commemoration of the Holocaust * Tuesday, May 1 * 7:00 to 9:00 PM * Temple Beth Shalom, 8 Tremont St., Cambridge

[cid:image002.png at 01CD13D7.836D09B0]Recalling all who perished during the Holocaust, this year's program features an evening of music, candle lighting, and remembrance. The guest speaker is Max Michelson. Max Michelson was born in Riga, Latvia where he lived with his parents when that country was overrun by the German army in June 1941. Together with the entire local Jewish community, he was forced into the Riga Ghetto. Following the "liquidation" of the Ghetto in December 1941, he survived a number of concentration camps and was liberated in Germany in May 1945. The sole survivor of his family, Michelson came to New York City after World War II and completed his education as an engineer. He settled in Massachusetts and spent his career as a scientist working on the design of radar systems at Raytheon. Michelson is the author of City of Life, City of Death, Memories of Riga, which describes his childhood and youth in pre-World War II Latvia and tells of his experiences during the Holocaust.

Music will be provided by the Cambridge Community Chorus and cellist Shaheen Lavie-Rouse.

The program is free, open to all, and wheelchair accessible. It welcomes all communities of Cambridge - including children and adults and people of all faiths and traditions.

Temple Beth Shalom is located just off Broadway, at 8 Tremont St., between Hampshire St. and Broadway (Tremont St. is one block east of Prospect St., between Central and Inman squares). Limited free parking is available: for more information check the Peace Commission webpage the day of the event at http://www.cambridgema.gov/peace.
