This Month In History


On April 26, 2013, Dana Cohen will visit the MacArthur Memorial On April 26, 2013, Dana Cohen will visit the MacArthur Memorial to share her personal story of courage and survival in the Holocaust.

Mrs. Cohen comes to the Memorial courtesy of the Holocaust Commission Speakers Bureau of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater.

General Douglas MacArthur believed that false ideas that claim that “one race is superior to others, [and] that the dignity of human beings is not important…threaten the very foundations of civilization.” To MacArthur and many of those who lived through World War II, the human cost of this flawed thinking was incredibly clear. He believed that the only way a better world could emerge “out of the blood and carnage of the past” was if people learned from the past and realized the inherent value and rights of human beings.

Join us in remembering the Holocaust and in understanding on a very personal level that what we do-or choose not to do-is incredibly important.

This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Call 757.441.2965 or email amanda.williams@norfolk.gov to RSVP.
