In an increasingly rare opportunity to hear the first-hand accounts of Holocaust survivors, Alverno College will hold its 16th annual Holocaust Remembrance Service, the largest non-Jewish gathering of this type in the Midwest. The service remembers the six million Jews who perished, and honors those who resisted and survived.
