As victims of Holocaust are remembered, community vows "never again"

  • As victims of Holocaust are remembered, community vows

But a survey released Thursday, on Holocaust Remembrance Day, found that many adults lack basic knowledge of what happened - and this lack of knowledge is more pronounced among millennials, whom the survey defined as people ages 18-34.

Sara Faye Marten, a member of the Beth-Jacob Synagogue, says people should never forget frightful history like the Holocaust so it's not repeated again. Then again, most people don't follow those debates to almost the extent I do.

On August 26, 1942, when they were seven, their father, Bruno, was caught in a round-up of Jews and eventually sent to an extermination camp, where he died along with two of his children.

Poland's Holocaust law wasn't meant to stifle testimonies about the crimes of World War II, which is a tough subject for Poles, President Andrzej Duda said after meeting his Israeli counterpart at the site of the Auschwitz Nazi concentration camp.

Indianapolis has paid tribute to the victims of the Nazi death camps in the annual Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremony at the statehouse.

Rivlin noted that Poland was "the cradle of Jewish culture", and that during the Second World War it became "the largest Jewish graveyard" in the world.

"Israel is closely watching the examination of conscience that is taking place in Poland", Rivlin said.

He also warned that instances of hate and bigotry are increasing.


In 1992, 25 percent of people believed that 2 million people or fewer were killed during the Holocaust, just 6 percentage points from the 31 percent of people that hold that belief today. "That's the part of Polish history the current government doesn't want people to know about".

"It's a must for people to remember", said Klein.

Danny Danon, Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, said he will be leading a delegation of U.N. ambassadors on the March of the Living and then to Israel.

The questions were developed by a committee that included officials from the Claims Conference, the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and Yad Vashem, as well as a Holocaust survivor and a polling expert from George Washington University. "No generation is exempt, no one can avoid it", he said. "Tonight, we will honor those who perished, those who survived, and those who dedicated their lives to telling their stories and ensuring that the memories of the Holocaust are never forgotten". The real number is six million.

While the vast majority of the march's 300,000 participants over the past 30 years were Jewish, roughly one-third of this year's marchers are non-Jews.

Rabbi Debbie Lefton, at Wexner Heritage Village, said, "Many of our survivors are in their 90s, and they're the ones who bear witness".

"These young adults carry their experience back to their communities, their cities and their countries".
