Statement from Elizabeth Pipko on Holocaust Remembrance DayStatement from Elizabeth Pipko on Holocaust Remembrance Day https://theexodusmovement.com/wp-content/themes/corpus/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg 150 150 Exodus Movement https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/8b99c451615975e0dc34d6492a72b243?s=96&d=mm&r=g
Please join me today in remembering the 6 million Jews who perished in the Holocaust.
It is our obligation to continue to honor the memory of those who were murdered by sharing the story of the atrocities of the holocaust with each new generation. We must make sure that we never forget what happened to our own people, as the world stood and watched, not so long ago.
As Elie Wiesel once said, “To forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time.”
They may be gone, but we carry with us their spirit and strength, everywhere that we go. With most of the survivors of the holocaust no longer with us today, it is more important now than ever before to make sure that their stories continue to be told, and that their message and memory remains at the forefront of our minds.
The fight against anti-Semitism is one that I take incredibly seriously.
The horrors of the holocaust must remain a lesson and a warning to us all. We CAN NOT simply stand by and watch as antisemitism sweeps our nation and our world.
“What hurts the victim most is not the cruelty of the oppressor but the silence of the bystander.”
– Elie Wiesel
I ask you all today, to promise yourselves that you will never be silent in the face of ANY forms of hatred. And that we will stand hand in hand and commit ourselves to the fight against anti-Semitism.
Say it with me now,
Founder | The Exodus Movement
