In a spirit of solemn remembrance, Rockhurst University invites you to commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day – Yom HaShoah. In cooperation with the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education, Rockhurst University hopes that this day of reflection will encourage prayerful contemplation and compassionate action on the relevance of the Holocaust in today’s society. Seeking to honor the memories of all those who suffered, those who were killed, and those who survived the Holocaust, our day of remembrance will take place on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, with the following events:

Reading of Names, 8:30am – 2:00pm, Kinerk Commons: reading aloud of the names of persons murdered by the Nazi regime – including 152 Jesuits - by students, faculty, staff, and members of the Kansas City community.

Prayer Service, 2:30pm – 3:00pm, Finucane Jesuit Center: prayer service including selections from Rockhurst University’s choir and Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy’s choir.
