The Shoah (Holocaust)
Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933 was the beginning of a systematic genocide that killed over six million Jews, Romani, Gays, and political opponents.
Many New York families know first hand what happened. We have empty seats at the table that should have been filled with a grandma, grandpa, auntie or uncle.
Whether you are Jewish or not, we must never forget, for once loose, the face of evil can turn on anyone.
This is especially important at this moment in American history when an unstable, insecure President who studied the speeches of Adolf Hitler (this was reported by his first wife) is using racial hatred and hate-filled rallies as a political tool.
We have been down this road and know where it leads. Never again. Nunca más. Never forget.
Silence is complicit.
