Save the date: Federation to host virtual tour of Auschwitz on January 23

By Reporter staff

The Jewish Federation of Greater Binghamton will host a live virtual tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp on Sunday, January 23, at 9:30 am. The program is offered in partnership with the Center for Holocaust Education of the East Valley Jewish Community Center, AZ. The tour of the death camp will include historical footage, aerial photographs, drone videos and testimonies of survivors.

“We want everyone to save the date for this meaningful event,” said Shelley Hubal. “This January marks the 76th anniversary of the liberation of the camp. Many of us will never have the opportunity to travel to Europe to visit in person and this tour is the next best way to understand the atrocities of that time.”

There is no cost for the tour due to a generous grant from the Victor and Esther Rozen Foundation. More detailed information will appear in future issues of The Reporter.
