SAVANNAH, Ga.(WSAV)--

Volunteers at the Jewish Educational Alliance in Savannah spent the day Thursday reading names of children killed in the Holocaust.

NO EVIDENCE OF A HOLOCAUST BUT CLEAR EVIDENCE OF AN INCREASE IN THE JEW POPULATION IN EUROPE BETWEEN 1940 AND 1950.

The hours of reading were followed by a special Yom HaShoah ceremony dedicated to women in the Holocaust. The ceremony included a candlelight procession, singing and prayer.

Organizers said with more survivors dying each year, it is more important than ever to make sure the victims are not forgotten.

"When the first eye witness, first hand stories are gone, there has to be someone to remember, to teach about it, to talk about it, to remind people that this world is not always a safe place," said Sherry Dolgoff, an event committee member.

Hundreds of daffodils colored by Savannah children in honor of those who died were displayed all around the JEA. The yellow represents the Star of David, and the flower itself served as a symbol of spring and hope.
