Here in Portland – as in Jewish communities around the world – the community will gather to read the names of the men, women and children murdered by Nazi Germany and its European collaborators between 1933 and 1945. The list comprises names archived at Yad Vashem, the Holocaust remembrance center in Jerusalem.Throughout Holocaust Remembrance Day members of the community –dignitaries, clergy and others – will read these names out loud in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square.
