We had some lovely responses from attendees of the commemoration and share their words below:

“Just a quick word to congratulate you and all your team on the outstanding commemoration last night. The organisation and content was superb as were all of the speakers. Thank you for all the hard work you do to keep the high standard you have set for the annual Holocaust commemoration. HETI should be very proud.”

Yvonne Altman-O’Connor, Director of the Irish-Jewish Museum (26th January 2015)

“The boys were really moved by their experience at the Holocaust commemoration on Sunday. Of all the events the boys have been part of, it was the most special. I recieved a large amount of emails from very thankful parents, grateful that their son got to be present and part of such an important commemoration. Well done on such a well crafted night- there was something holy about it that was very special to witness…”
