This year's theme, "ONE PEOPLE, ONE FATE," reinforces our dedication to illuminating the wide-ranging experiences of the Jewish communities affected by the Holocaust. Through a compelling video featuring testimonies from survivors from Greece, Italy, Poland, and Hungary, we seek to remind ourselves of the collective history that unites us and the strength that has emerged from our darkest times. The inclusion of Mizrahi community members in our ceremony further celebrates our rich diversity and shared fate.

In moving the ceremony to the Montreal Holocaust Museum for the first time, we underscore the significance of Holocaust education in the heart of our community. It is a poignant reminder of the importance of commemorating Yom HaShoah as an act of resistance against the resurgence of antisemitism and hate. In these challenging times, the lessons of the Holocaust are more vital than ever, teaching us the consequences of silence and the absolute necessity to speak out. Together, we remember to ensure a future free from hatred, embracing the sanctity of diversity and human dignity.
