Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. Here are four true heroes to remember.


Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

Never forget. Never again. Never forget. Never again.

(Jerusalem, Israel) — Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it, said Santayana. Indeed, let us never forget.

Today, Sunday, April 27th, is Yom HaShoah.

Today, we remember the six million Jews that were murdered by the Nazis, including 1.5 million children. Today, we honor their memories, and pledge ourselves never to forget them. Today, we devote ourselves to making sure such evil is never allowed to happen again. This is not just a day for Jews. This is a day for the whole world to remember.

This evening, I will attend the Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremony at Yad Vashem, Israel’s renowned Holocaust memorial and research center. It is my first time being invited, and I am deeply honored to be able to participate. After the event, I will Tweet updates, and then post more on this blog, so you can track what is happening and consider its significance.
