Holocaust survivor Milton Yudkowitz, who lives at the Daughters of Miriam Center apartments, shows the number tattooed on his arm he got at Auschwitz. He was accompanied by pianist Rhoda Rosenfeld.

Daughters of Miriam Center/the Gallen Institute hosted a Holocaust remembrance ceremony that included nursing home residents and apartment tenants who are Holocaust survivors, children of Holocaust survivors, or fought against the Nazis and their allies. The program was led by Rabbi Moshe Mirsky, DOMC’s director of religious services.
