Holocaust Remembrance Day
Learn the lessons of the Holocaust and anti-Semitism and understand the horrific realities of genocide in this complimentary booklet, Never Forget, Never Again
On Holocaust Remembrance Day, we pledge to remember the 6,000,000 victims. But we cannot forget about those who survived the Holocaust. Over 400,000 Jewish survivors live in poverty. Sadly, 40 survivors die every single day – alone and forgotten. It won't be long before none of them are left. We must act now to help them while there is still time.
