Remembering those lost in Holocaust

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Many came to the Hunter Post Chapel on Hunter Army Airfield to remember the Holocaust Wednesday.

The day of Remembrance Observance comes on the 65th anniversary of the verdicts delivered at the international military tribunal.

During the ceremony seven candles were lit; the first six in honor of the 6 million Jews who lost their lives during the Holocaust and the seventh was lit in honor of the non- Jews who died.

Organizers hope the observance encourages reflection.
