Held at the National War Museum in Ottawa, the annual National Holocaust Remembrance Day Ceremony commemorates the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and pays tribute to the survivors who rebuilt their lives in Canada. The program includes a personal account by a Holocaust survivor, remarks by the leaders of the major Canadian political parties, and moving musical presentations. Participants come from Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto as well as other communities, including 200 high school students. The 2019 theme is, "Struggle for Survival: Jewish Resistance during the Holocaust." A reception follows the event.
