Posted on Updated on

R2R

Dear Friends and Family,
 
The Yellow Rose Project is organizing a very unique Yom Hashoah ceremony on Sunday, April, 27th, 2014 at 1:00PM at the Bathurst Lawn Cemetery in the Lodz Centre section. 
 
Franka Kon, Holocaust survivor originally from Lodz, has always wanted to honour survivors passed with a single yellow rose; this is why the Yellow Rose Project is organizing the Roses to Remember ceremony.  Yellow roses will be distributed at the ceremony and guests are invited to rest them on tombs as a symbol of life and hope for the future of the Jewish people and of course, to honour their memory.
