BERLIN (AP) — In a story Dec. 4 about Holocaust survivors marking the third night of Hanukkah, The Associated Press misidentified the vice president of the Claims Conference in Israel. His name is Shlomo Gur.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Holocaust survivors gathering for global Hanukkah ceremonies
Survivors of the Nazi Holocaust are gathering in four cities around the world for menorah-lighting ceremonies marking the third night of Hanukkah
BERLIN (AP) — Hundreds of Holocaust survivors around the world marked the third night of Hanukkah on Tuesday, with menorah-lighting ceremonies paying tribute to them and the 6 million other Jews who were killed by the Nazis.
Initiated last year by the New York-based organization that handles claims on behalf of Jews persecuted by the Nazis, International Holocaust Survivors Night was expanded this year to include Moscow, a nod to the large number of survivors who live in Russia and other former Soviet countries.
