Remains of Holocaust Victims Solemnly Laid To Rest

Remains Of Holocaust Victims Solemnly Laid To Rest In Rockland County

 A community gathered Thursday in Rockland County to fulfill the promise to never forget.

They laid to rest some unknown victims of the Holocaust, murdered more than 70 years ago, more than 4,000 miles away.

They grieved for the dead without knowing their names. Bound by faith and history, a community indelibly marked by the Holocaust buried ashes of unknown victims from a death camp in Poland.

“I feel that we are really honored, blessed, having these remains left in our hands,” said Paul Galan, the president of the Rockland Holocaust Museum.

The discovery was made earlier this year as the Rockland Holocaust Museum moved to a new home, and a collection of items from Auschwitz was taken out of storage.
