Hundreds gather to commemorate lives lost during Holocaust

WHITE PLAINS -

Hundreds of people lined the streets of downtown White Plains on Monday to commemorate the millions of lives lost during the Holocaust.

Westchester's annual Day of Remembrance event was hosted by the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center and the Westchester Jewish Council.

Children from Westchester Day School were in attendance, commemorating the day through song.

Esther Geizhals, of Larchmont, survived three concentration camps. The Nazis invaded where she lived in Poland when she was 10 years old. Now 87, Geizhals shared her painful past with the community, including clergy and elected officials.

More than 11 million people were victims of the Nazi genocide, including 6 million Jewish people.
