OKC Natl Memorial Survivor tree will be site of Paris vigil on Tuesday, Nov. 17

 The Holocaust Remembrance and Restitution Foundation Inc. is co-sponsoring a multicultural and interfaith candlelight vigil and memorial service at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Survivor Tree on the grounds of the Oklahoma City National Memorial  and Museum in downtown Oklahoma City.

Organizers said the event is being held to honor the victims of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.  

Tuesday's memorial service will include members of national, state and local governments, including the governor’s office, religious communities and cultural community leaders, delegates from the French government, as well as educational leaders from across the state.

The service will include a candlelight vigil, moments of silence and prayer, speeches from various people, and a time for the Oklahoma City metro community to send condolences to the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris.

Attendees will be encouraged to add their signature to a sign that will be sent to the French Parliament or the office of the Paris Mayor in an effort to show solidarity.

 In the event of rain, the memorial will be held in the Center for Education and Outreach inside the museum.
