At sundown today, Holocaust Remembrance Day begins. As you reflect on that time, and the six million Jews (over one million of which were children) who were murdered, consider also the other estimated five million people who perished as well. People who were seen as “less than” and murdered. In addition to Jews, the Nazis targeted Gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and the disabled (physically or mentally) for persecution. Anyone who resisted the Nazis was sent to forced labor or murdered.
We cannot forget what happened, or we will allow it to happen again.
