Remembering survivors


With community input, the Rhode Island Holocaust Memorial Committee has been able to compile a collection of names of Holocaust survivors who made a life for themselves and their families in Rhode Island.

At a community ceremony, sponsored by the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island and the RI Holocaust Memorial Committee, on Aug. 28 at 4 p.m., these survivors, as well as the many more whose names have yet to be identified, will be honored. A list of names appears online at

If you or your family’s name is not part of this first wave of engravings, please contact Michelle Cicchitelli, mcicchitelli or 401-421-4111, ext. 178.
