International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Seventy-three years ago today the surviving prisoners of Auschwitz were liberated. Today, we commemorate the event through International Holocaust Remembrance Day, remembering the countless Jewish and other victims of the Nazi regime’s brutal persecution and genocide. We stand with others across the globe to both honor the victims and remember the evils that can occur when power is used to divide and control.

Adolf Hitler rose to power by exploiting the fears and socioeconomic insecurities of the people and subsequently used the government’s power against its own. He widened ethnic and religious fissures and turned his people against Jewish and other minority communities. The more than 6 million casualties from his pogrom are a horrific testament to the dangers of hatred and divisiveness.

As Edmund Burke famously said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” This day of remembrance must also be a day of commitment; commitment that we will never allow hatred and division to again take such a firm grasp on humanity. #WeRemember so we never again repeat.
