This web section is dedicated to the millions of lives lost in the Shoah,
the most documented and horrific act in history.

Always Remember...Never Forget...Never Again are empty words unless we take action when we witness evil.
Note: These can be mere empty words that sound politically correct unless we actively do something when we see these injustices take place today.
To be a bystander in the face of these injustices is to allow them to occur again and thus make the above words meaningless. BECOME AN UPSTANDER- Speak out and standup when you see injustice against others.
