This year, for the first time, Hillel students painted the names of the concentration camps against a black background painted on a fence.
The annual CMU Holocaust Remembrance Names Reading was held on April 12 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
In addition to the first and last names of the Holocaust victims, locations and dates of both birth and death were also included on the pages. Readers were encouraged to choose how they wished to read each page.
English and Hebrew readings, including poems, prayers and stories were provided for volunteers.
