Why We Remember the Holocaust
This video emphasizes the importance of preserving freedom, supporting human dignity and confronting hate. The Days of Remembrance cause us to pause, to memorialize those lost, to remember the unthinkable scars on humanity, and reflect on how we can prevent future genocides by embracing the moral challenge to stand up to injustice and hatred.
Voices of Rescue
During the Holocaust, many individuals faced choices—choices to intervene in what they witnessed or to stand by and allow the hatred that eventually led to mass murder. This video chronicles those who chose to take action, even though it meant putting their lives at risk. The film tells of well-known UPSTANDERS who saved thousands of lives, as well as those who saved the lives of one family.
One Survivor Remembers
In a tribute to those who never had the opportunity to tell their own stories, Gerda Weissmann tells her story of being deported to a forced labor factory and of surviving a death march before being liberated. And, she recounts the loss of her entire family and dearest friends during the Holocaust.
By standing up to evil, its progress can be slowed or even stopped. Damas Gisimba tells how he taught the children of his orphanage to confront hatred despite their racial differences as Hutus and Tutsis. He and American aid worker Carl Wilkens explain how they protected 400 people in an orphanage designed for 60 by refusing to allow hatred to fester and by encouraging unity.
