The Town of Concord’s Annual Holocaust Remembrance, co-sponsored by the Concord-Carlisle Human Rights Council, will take place on Sunday, April 24th at 7:00 PM at the Concord Town House. The event will also be accessible via a Zoom Webinar for those not able to attend in-person (link below).
This year we are honored to welcome Irwin Hipsman of Concord and Sid Levin of Carlisle as our speakers. Irwin and Sid are first cousins and the sons of Holocaust survivor parents. Their mothers, Ella Hipsman and Joyce Levin, are sisters who survived the Holocaust by hiding in the forests of Poland along with the remaining members of their family. Today, Ella and Joyce have been blessed with three sons each and live within a few miles of each other outside of Boston. Irwin and Sid will share their mothers’ stories along with reflections on what it was like to grow up under the dark cloud of their parents haunting memories.
For the safety of our community members, the Human Rights Council recommends wearing a mask if attending the event in person. The event will also be recorded and available for later viewing.
