“Holocaust Remembrance Week” The United States Congress established the Days of Remembrance as the nation’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust. Each year, the Week of Remembrance, runs from the Sunday before Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom Hashoah) through the following Sunday.
I was raised Catholic and went to a woman's Catholic college, was married at a Catholic Church. Left the church in 1970 and gave up church entirely.
