TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - One Terre Haute museum remembered the Holocaust Saturday. Saturday afternoon, Candles Holocaust Museum held a candle lighting ceremony to honor holocaust victims.
The event began with stories from Eva and Mickey Kor. Both of them survived Nazi concentration camps.
Museum officials say it's more than just remembering, it's forgiving.
"The world can seem like a dark and depressing place, and when we gather here, we realize there are so many people dedicated to spreading light and creating a better world. So it's a chance for us to reflect on our own power and responsibility in ending genocide," said Kiel Majewski, executive director.
Terre Haute South's STAND club led attendees in making bones out of clay.
This was for the One Million Bones project.
The project is a collaborative art installation designed to recognizes the millions of victims and survivors of ongoing genocides and humanitarian crises.
The bones will be installed with the rest on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on June 8-10.
