Let's Not Forget
Today should be a day of remembrance, education and reflection. Today...January 25th, marks the very sad anniversary of the many Jewish lives lost during the Holocaust; but also note the liberation of the Auschwitz Concentration Camps. While 60 years seems like a long time for our students I urge you to read the stories of the people who are still suffering from the horrific experience during this time of inhumanity as though it's today. Let's use this time to teach about our history and educate our young people to know that innocent lives, young lives...should never be lost because of bigotry, racism and hatred.
60th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Auschwitz Concentration Camp, 2005
"At the Auschwitz concentration camp, evil found willing servants and innocent victims. For almost 5 years, Auschwitz was a factory for murder where more than a million lives were taken. It is a sobering reminder of the power of evil and the need for people to oppose evil wherever it exists. It is a reminder that when we find anti-Semitism, we must come together to fight it."
