Voices From the Holocaust

“The Holocaust Memorial Observances remind our community that anti-Semitism wiped out an entire generation of human beings and their rich and vibrant heritage throughout Europe. Millions of by-standers watched as hatred initiated by the Holocaust grew and flourished – and the few who were rescuers were too few in number to save the innocent masses. Evidence shows that where population resisted the demonic actions of the NAZIs that Jews survived in far greater proportion than in areas where the population did not oppose or resist. Today, we need, as then, as few by-standers as possible, whenever hatred and prejudice raise their ugly heads in our community. And they do raise their heads here, unfortunately, in the form of anti-Semitism, race hatred, denigration of linguistic differences, and the like. The programs generated during the memorial observance week have, in past years, drawn numerous people from our community and some outlying areas. It is the hope of the Holocaust Memorial Observances Committee of Greeley & Northern Colorado that the values these programs instill across the age spectrum, diverse religious groups, and the general cultural mosaic of our community give members of our community the courage, where it might otherwise be lacking, to counteract hate, bigotry, and prejudice whenever and wherever they encounter it.”
