TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – The local Jewish community came together Monday to remember those who lost their lives during the most darkest time in their history.

Hundreds gathered at the Ramada Inn for a Holocaust Commemoration Ceremony.

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback and other local legislators were present as a proclamation was made to commemorate this somber day.

The Washburn University Choir made a performance.

The event’s keynote speaker was Sam Wisman, grandson of Holocaust survivor Herbert Moses who shared a recording of his grandfather’s experience.

There was also a row of candles lit to remember the about six million Jews who were killed at the hands of the Nazi empire during World War II.
