Address on behalf of the survivors by Chaim Noy

State Opening Ceremony of Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day ‏2024

Sometimes, when I’m sad and especially when I yearn for my mother and father, I listen to songs in Yiddish—the language of my childhood. When doing so, I can close my eyes and recall the cantor singing the Kol Nidrei prayer at synagogue; I can recollect the aroma of the Shabbat challahs my mother used to bake, recall the flavor of the bread roll slathered with goose fat that I loved so much, and remember my friends at the heder, where we learned how to read Hebrew.
