Soon Jewish people will light candles and remember the six million whose lives were cut short by the Nazis.

It's a time when those of the Jewish faith commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day or Yom HaShoah as it is known in Hebrew.

Yom HaShoah is April 7 and Peoria is holding a program on April 8. Holocaust Survivor and author Marion Blumenthal Lazan will be the guest speaker.
