The Riverhead Town Anti-Bias Task Force will host a Holocaust remembrance event tomorrow at the Riverhead Free Library.

The event will bring together local speakers to share personal stories and family photographs about how the Holocaust impacted their families’ histories. The event starts at the library at 5:30 p.m..

The Riverhead ABTF invites the public to join us in honoring those who suffered at the hands of bias, and those who keep their memories alive,” ABTF co-chair Cindy Clifford wrote in a press release. “Lessons from the past cannot undo the damage done but can serve as a warning in the present and for the future.”
