Yom Hashoah will be held April 19, 2020 at the Tri Ciy Jewish Center (2715 30th St, Rock Island, IL). The speaker will be Ida Paluch Kersz.
In 1942, Ida Paluch Kersz was separated from her family in Poland as soldiers of the Nazi German regime rounded up the Jews of the Sosnowiec ghetto. The Holocaust survivor, who now lives in the Chicago suburb of Skokie, will be the 2020 keynote speaker this year in the Quad Cities. Details will be forthcoming.
