The community is invited to “Resisting Hatred and Anti-Semitism,” Temple Emeth’s Holocaust Remembrance Day program.

The Highlight of the evening will be a special screening of “Etched in Glass: The Legacy of Steve Ross.” This is the compelling true story of a boy who endured 10 Nazi concentration camps over five years and grew up to help thousands of at-risk youth.

Survivor George Zimmerman will relate his experience, which included surviving several camps before being liberated by the Russians.

Rachel Fish, senior advisor and resident scholar at the Paul E. Singer Foundation, will speak on anti-Semitism today. She is the former associate director of the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University.

Daniel Agranov, deputy consul general of Israel to New England, will welcome attendees. Remarks will be given by Heather Hamilton of the Brookline Select Board.

There will be poignant words of remembrance by Rabbi Alan Turetz and impressions of Poland by members of Tzofim (Israeli Scouts). There will also be readings by Jewish community students.

Music will be by Tzofim and members of Temple Emeth’s Pa’amonim Israeli singers.
