2013 DLT Holocaust Remembrance

2013 DLT Holocaust Remembrance Committee

Every year, the nation sets aside time in the spring to reflect and remember the Holocaust, and to honor the more than six million victims of Nazi genocide. For this year’s theme, the United States Holocaust Museum has selected “Never Again: Heeding the Warning Signs.”

The Desert Lightning Team Holocaust Remembrance program will begin at the Hope Chapel April 25, at 10 a.m., where all DLT personnel are invited to a “We Will Remember” ceremony. Noted historian Dr. David Graizbord will present a historical count of the Jewish Holocaust of the 1930s-40s.

The DLT will host seven local Holocaust survivors. Among them are Walter Feiger, German Gross-Rosen concentration camp survivor; Wanda Wolosky, Warsaw Ghetto survivor; Dr. Klara Swimmer, Auschwitz survivor; as well as first-hand witness accounts from Mrs. Lily Brull, Ms. Yuliya Gemina, Ms. Annique Dveirin and Mr. Alfred Schreier.

Immediately to follow, the seven Holocaust survivors will present their life stories to various units around base including the 612th Air Communications Squadron at building 72, the 355th Medical Group at the Education and Training room, the 355th Communications Squadron at the Automatic Data Processing Equipment Bay, the 355th Equipment Maintenance Squadron at the Base Theater, the 355th Logistics Readiness Squadron at building 4859, the 355th Fighter Wing Staff in the Equal Opportunity classroom and the 563rd Rescue Group at the 48th Rescue Squadron conference room.

Individuals not assigned to a unit hosting a survivor are invited to the Base Theater.

Dr. Gail Wallen, who developed the Holocaust military educational program, calls the visit by local survivors a gift and a burden. She notes that it is up to our generation to keep the stories alive.

Wallen adds, “You’re the last generation that will hear these stories in person.”

For more information about the events, contact Master Sgt. Gary Goldberg at 228-7575.
