Holocaust Museum to Bury Ashen Remains of Holocaust Victims in Monsey Ceremony

The Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education will be burying the ashen remains of victims of the Holocaust in Monsey after they were recently found in a box in their archives. The Museum was doing inventory when they found the ashes from mass graves at the Chelmno death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland. The remains are just a fraction of the at least 172,000 victims of Chelmno, the first stationary death camp to use gas instead of bullets for mass murder. Museum curator Julie Golding says such a find is extremely uncommon…

A burial service will be held tomorrow at 4:30 p.m. at the Congregation Sons of Israel Spring Valley Cemetery on Brick Church Road in Monsey. That will be followed by a memorial at 6:30 at the Museum on the lower level of the RCC Campus Library, next to the bookstore. All are encouraged to attend.
