SPARTANBURG, SC (WSPA) – A ceremony to memorialize those killed in the Holocaust was held in downtown Spartanburg on Sunday.
The ceremony featured two speakers who are descendants of Holocaust survivors.
“I want them to know how great they have it and how bad it was for people like my mother back then and what went on with the anti Semitism and it really makes me upset because there is a lot of anti Semitism going on in Europe and America too!” says Joe Goldberg, son of a Holocaust survivor.
Spartanburg’s Ted Pearce, founder of March of Remembrance, plans to travel to Switzerland for remembrance ceremonies there where he will perform songs he wrote about the Holocaust.
Pearce says he started the organization because of his love of history and to remember the Holocaust and keep people from forgetting the 6 million people who were killed.
