HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY
To survivors, the Holocaust remains real and ever-present, but for some others, sixty years makes the Holocaust seem part of ancient history. Year-round we try to teach and inform others about the horrors of the Holocaust. We confront the questions of what happened? How did it happen? How could it happen? Could it happen again? We attempt to fight against ignorance with education and against disbelief with proof.
This one day in the year when we should make a special effort to remember. Upon this one day, we remember those who suffered, those who fought back, and those that died. From 1939 till the end of World War 2 in Europe, over six million Jews were detained, forced into labour camps and eventually murdered as a final solution. Along with them were several more millions deemed undesirable, from homosexuals, Gypsy's, Jehovah's Witnesses and other not conformist churches, to the physically and mentally handicapped.
