“Out of despair comes hope,” was the message relayed by dozens of Jewish and Christian families at the March of Remembrance Sunday, April 16, along the streets of Murrieta. The hope of the Jewish community was that young people would learn never to repeat the horrible atrocities of Nazi Germany in World War II that took the lives of over 6 million Jews and others.The 10th annual March of Remembrance was sponsored by the Holocaust Remembrance Foundation of the Valley, and it brought one of the few still living survivors of the Holocaust, Yetta Kane, along with Amit Mekel, deputy chief of mission of the Consulate General of Israel to Pacific Southwest, and rabbis from local Jewish congregations to Murrieta Mesa High School, the starting point of the march.Clark Van Wick of Calvar
