The Nazis invaded Howard Kaidanow’s home in 1941. On Wednesday, April 11, he will share the story of his survival during the Yom HaShoah, or Day of Remembrance, program at the York Jewish Community Center, 2000 Hollywood Drive, York Township.

Kaidanow was born in Lodz, Poland. His parents were murdered a year after the Nazi invasion, but he and his younger brother escaped. Kaidanow became a Partisan fighter, battling the Nazis, before coming to the United States in 1954. There he met Esther, a fellow Holocaust survivor, in 1959. They were married two years later.

The Yom HaShoah program begins at 7 p.m. and will include a candle-lighting ceremony and a short worship service.
