This week, communities around the country will gather for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s annual Days of Remembrance. Observances to commemorate the Holocaust started this past Sunday, April 15 and go to Sunday, April 22, including a ceremony with survivors and liberators in the U.S. Capitol on April 19, Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah).
Why do we have days of Remembrance? First and foremost to honor the victims of the Holocaust. We also remember the survivors, the liberators and their families. Finally, we look back to remind the world that we must act when genocide reappears. Even as we observe Days of Remembrance this week, atrocities continue in Sudan, Syria, Burma and Congo. Abroad and at home, people are making sacrifices and dedicating their lives to ending such injustice. As Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel stated in a short speech about Aung San Suu Kyi, “we must let these people know that they are not alone.”
Joining the 2012 Days of Remembrance is easy:
