The burden, the lesson and the challenge of the holocaust rests with all of  us, especially you,  and is what this website is all about. We must remember, and  learn from the past; our past and your past.  We must learn how indifference has impacted  the lives of so many in the past, and even to the present.  

Whenever any nation looks to a charismatic leader, trusting  his success blindly, what has happened before, elsewhere, could happen again, and  could happen here in  our country, whenever people follow the crowd without thinking for themselves.

indifference to human suffering, human indignity, human inequity.
Show feeling, empathy.  Care about your  future. Get involved with others; you’ll be amazed how great it feels to work together in a community to bring change! If something is wrong in your school, in your community, in your nation, or in your world, do something. Question everything and draw your own conclusions. Beware of apathy. Fight indifference  Think for yourself.

Good luck, and good viewing.  Let’s hear from you if you have questions, or suggestions. Our sincere hope for all of you from all of us Veterans of WWII is this: have a great life and a happy future!  You can, you must make it so!
