International Holocaust Remembrance Day –January 27

Tom-of-the-coast-of-Maine-2Today, January 27, has been declared by the United Nations as International Holocaust Remembrance Day.  Just recently, I had the chance to re-read Ellie Weisel’s moving account of his own journey through those terrible years, Night.  If you have never read this book I commend it to you.

This year the theme of the National Holocaust Museum focuses on the warning signs or impending danger.  I am attaching Museum’s presentation  to this blog in hopes that you will watch it and remember not only these terrible years of  oppression and the slaughter of the Jewish people but all who suffer world-wide from humanity’s inhumanityWarning Signs of the Holocaust

The following Youtube video from The Tolerance Project provides a short history of the Holocaust that teachers and parents may find suitable for familiarizing young people with what went on in the Holocaust.

Lest we never forget!
