Idahoans commemorate the Holocaust

Community members, elected officials and clergy gathered at the Capitol on Tuesday for the 34th Idaho Day of Holocaust Remembrance, which featured songs, poetry readings and candle lighting.

This year’s ceremony was dedicated to Rose Beal, who fled Nazi Germany with her family and tirelessly shared her personal stories about the Holocaust during a decade of residence in Boise. She died in Boise last fall at age 92. She was a docent at the Idaho Ann Frank Human Rights Memorial, and the Rose Beal Legacy Garden was dedicated at the memorial, located between the Boise Public Library and the Greenbelt.
