Local government officials, religious leaders and community members gathered Sunday to remember the victims of the Holocaust.

The Emanuel Jacob Congregation in Mansfield hosted its annual Holocaust Memorial Service. The memorial service included readings, prayers and music.

Lori Cope, Safety Service Director, for the city of Mansfield and Ed Olson, Richland County Commissioner, delivered proclamations designating April 27 through May 4 as the Days of Remembrance.

This year's guest speaker was Sol Factor, who currently teaches Jewish History at Kent State University. He was born in Munich, Germany in 1946 near a displaced person's camp.

In 1990 he began a 17-year search for his birth mother, a Holocaust survivor who disappeared in the aftermath of World War II.

Emanuel Jacob Congregation has held the memorial service for nearly 20 years.
