There is now a new official poster for the commemoration Holocaust Martrys' & Heroes Remembrance 5770. Full of visual strength and meaning, the poster integrates the traditional "yizkor" prayer with the names of victims of the Shoah, creating a dialogue between the two. The use of traditional, and even perhaps cliched symbols - the yellow of the star of david and the gray stripes, remnisicent of the uniforms worn in the concentration and death camps - are utilized in a new way. The differing elements create interest and are sure to successfully arouse curiosity and encourage deeper study of the subject of the Holocaust.
