Five years ago the Oregon Holocaust Memorial in Portland's Washington Park was dedicated, to leave a legacy of hope for all citizens in our community and to teach what hatred and bigotry can do when an entire government endorses those ideologies.  A fifth anniversary event from 11:00 am to 3:30 pm Sunday August 30th 2009 at the memorial will feature teachers, political dignitaries, clergy, students, survivors, and musical interludes.

Lisa Kaner from Friends of the Oregon Holocaust Memorial and Miriam Greenstein from the Oregon Holocaust Resource Center speak with Yiddish Hour host Ed Kraus about the message of the memorial ... acceptance of diversity, and to protect the civil rights of each other.
