ABC 7: San Jose honors Holocaust heroes, looks to future ahead of remembrance day
SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- Families of Holocaust survivors are recounting their terror as the U.S. sees a rise in antisemitism ahead of Holocaust Remembrance Day Saturday.
The day marks the liberation of Auschwitz, one of the death camps where Nazi soldiers murdered millions Jews and others in the 1940s.
The City of San Jose is honoring those lives lost, hoping to remember the past in order to shape the future.
"I believe the history we remember and the stories we choose to tell, the heroes we choose to celebrate are what we determine who we become," San Jose Mayor Matt Mahan said.
