This year in honor of Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, AEPi Milwaukee has decided to take action and remember the Holocaust in a 2 part program.
First, We will meet at Spaights Plaza and We Will Walk to Remember.
Second, that evening, we will have the privilege of hearing Werner Richheimer, a holocaust survivor that will share his story with us, at Hillel Milwaukee's building.
We want to invite YOU to join us for both parts, and help us to Never Forget.
More about the program:
In Israel, Yom Ha’Shoah — Holocaust Remembrance Day — is commemorated with a siren at 10:00 AM and two minutes of silence. On college campuses around the world, Alpha Epsilon Pi brothers honor the victims of the Holocaust in a different way. While the silence is common to both observances, undergraduates brothers focus on ensuring that people on their campus and the surrounding community never forget.
In collaboration with B’nai B’rith International, they embark on a silent march for the “We Walk to Remember” (WW2R) program. The only sounds emanating from the procession are their footsteps hitting the pavement and the wind flapping against the information cards distributed to those who ask why they walk.
