A Journey of Education and Remembrance

International Holocaust Remembrance Day is January 27th.

It's more important than ever to share the stories of Holocaust survivors. The urgency of keeping Holocaust memory alive and accessible is greater than ever. The Holocaust is now an event “on the edge of living memory.” Soon there will be no first-hand witnesses to share their stories.

The lessons from the Holocaust can guide us to a better tomorrow where no marginalized minority will ever stand alone in their fight for human rights.
