Holocaust Remembrance Day

P1010873-300x225Stephen Nasser took a much-needed break from his hectic schedule of school presentations to attend a special event at the Nevada governor’s mansion in Carson City.

By special invitation, thirty-six survivors of the Holocaust and their spouses were flown on Sheldon Adelson’s private jet to participate in Holocaust Remembrance Day with P1020021-300x225Governor Brian Sandoval. Seven of the survivors, including Mr. Nasser, were called up to light memorial candles as part of the ceremony, which also included a lovely reception filled with abundant food, beautiful singing, and a poignant reading from Ann Frank’s diary.

Mr. Nasser also presented Governor Sandoval with a signed copy of P1020008-300x225My Brother’s Voice and a sample chapter of his new play based on his diaries, Not Yet, Pista. A perfect ending to a magical day.

Now back to “school!”
