Yam Hashoah Holocaust Days Of Remembrance

A special ceremony was held Sunday to honor those who lost their lives in the Holocaust and to mark Holocaust Days of Remembrance.

 The House of Jacob, in Wichita Falls, looked back at the World War II  devastation.

In a packed synagogue those in attendance heard from Jack Repp, a Holocaust survivor that lives in North Texas.

His story was one of fighting a daily battle as a teenager to live to tell about the atrocities.

He was forced along with other children to work 6 hours a day outside with no water.

To remember those who's lives were lost 6 candles were lit today, each one represented 1 million people who died in the concentration camps.
