Yom Hashoah – Holocaust Remembrance Day

Yom Hashoah: Holocaust Remembrance Day“Nations cannot be saved and must not be saved as an afterthought or from considerations of cost-benefit. Unless the moral fire burns within us, the lessons of the Holocaust will never be learned.” ~ Reuven Rivlin, President of Israel

“Thou shalt not be a victim, thou shalt not be a perpetrator, but, above all, thou shall not be a bystander.” ~ Yehuda Bauer, an Israeli historian and scholar of the Holocaust, “The Legacy of the Holocaust.”

“Monsters exist, but they are too few in number to be truly dangerous. More dangerous are the common men, the functionaries ready to believe and to act without asking questions.” ~ Primo Levi, Italian Jewish chemist, writer, and Holocaust survivor
