Holocaust Remembrance Service of Northwest Louisiana
The Holocaust Remembrance Service
The service is held at a different location each year. The service usually lasts approximately one hour. Dress should be appropriately respectful for a house of worship.

The ceremony usually includes:

Appropriate musical passages
Welcome and Benediction
Proclamation and presentation by the Mayors of Shreveport and Bossier City 
Lighting 11 candles in memory of the 11 million victims of the Shoah/Holocaust
Keynote speaker and/or Special program
