The central KKL-JNF event marking Holocaust Remembrance Day will be held in Israel in collaboration with the Bnai Brith World Center. This ceremony is unique both in Israel and also worldwide, in that it is dedicated to the memory of Jews who rescued other Jews during the Holocaust. The traditional ceremony will be held in Martyrs' Forest in the Scrolls of Fire plaza. In honor of the 80th anniversary of the founding of Aliyat Hanoar (Youth Aliya), this year’s ceremony will mark the heroism of two outstanding rescuers: Recha Freier and Josef Itai.
