Survivors of the Holocaust were joined by New Jersey school children, politicians and interfaith religious leaders at the state's largest and oldest Holocaust remembrance. Newark's 22nd annual Holocaust Remembrance took place Tuesday at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.

The event focused on remembering the victims of the Holocaust, honoring its survivors and emphasizing that a new generation must keep the memory alive.

Newark Mayor Cory Booker was joined by Newark Archbishop John Myers as well as several hundred students at the service.

The consul-general of the Netherlands delivered a keynote address about the life of Dutch Holocaust victim Anne Frank. Her childhood diary chronicled her family's plight.
