Shoah Commemoration

More than 70 years after the Shoah, the systematic murder of six million Jews by the Nazis and their collaborators, representing a third of the world’s Jewish population and a half of Europe’s, it is incumbent upon us as Jews and as Europeans to maintain the memory of this most unique of genocides and to draw the lessons from it for our own days.

We must seek different methods to convey the same message of where hatred and intolerance and antisemitism lead. The most important of these is through education and the EJC works with governments and local authorities to ensure the insertion and maintenance of Holocaust education in curricula and non-curricula activities.
