Sen. Albers to Participate in a March to Remember the Holocaust

State Sen. John Albers (R-Roswell) will participate in the “March of Remembrance” this Sunday, May 1 at Stone Mountain Park to remember the Holocaust. The prayer walk is being organized by the Atlanta Messianic Congregation Beth Adonai. Sen. Albers has been asked to serve as a guest speaker where he will join other lawmakers and honorable guests.

“I’m honored to walk with the members of my community to honor those who suffered this tragic event in our history,” said Albers. “It’s important that we never forget that oppression can lead to such cruelty. These community events are a way to lift our voices as one against such hatred and teach future generations the lessons learned from the Holocaust.”

The two mile march will begin at 10:00 a.m. at Stone Mountain Park, and is open to the public. To register, please visit www.bethadonai.com.

This year marks the sixth annual March of Remembrance that began in Germany in 2006. In just a year, the prayer marches had spread to Washington, D.C., the Ukraine and cities throughout the U.S. For more information on these historic marches, or for a list of marches taking place all over the world on May 1, visit www.MarchofRememberance.org.
