The gathering marked Yom HaShoah, the annual day set aside to remember those who died in the Holocaust.
Those who spoke to the crowd echoed the pleas of generations before — to never forget the Holocaust and what happened.
Israel’s New England General Consul, Shai Bazak, said that becomes more important every year:
“There are less and less persons who can tell us about the time, to remind us,” he said.
Daisy Brand survived.
She talked of forced labor and days marching – and the day her mother disappeared.
It was 65 years before she met a man who knew what happened.
Mayor Tom Menino spoke, urging to remember the stories of those who perished and honor their legacy
