Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust: Sixty Years Since the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising

Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Day 2003

Torchlighters 2003

Each year, six Holocaust survivors are chosen to light torches in memory of the six million Jews who were murdered during the Holocaust. Their wartime experiences reflect the central theme chosen by Yad Vashem for Holocaust Remembrance Day. The torches are lit during the central memorial ceremony held at Yad Vashem on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day. The stories of this year's torchlighters are presented in this section.
