We remember the survivors of the death camps, who endured such unimaginable suffering and who have inspired us all with their indomitable courage, spirit, and will to live.
We remember the absence of an Israel in those wartime years, an Israel which, had it existed, would have provided a haven when so shamefully few countries were willing to accept Jewish refugees.
We shall never forget those who saved even a single life. As it is written in the Talmud: "He who saves one life has saved the world."
We shall never forget the importance of speaking out against intolerance, whenever and wherever it occurs.We shall never forget the inextricable link among democracy, the rule of law, and protection of human rights. We shall never forget the age-old prophetic vision of a world of justice, harmony, and peace. And we shall never forget that each of us, in ways large and small, can help bring us closer to the realization of that prophetic vision. SOURCE American Jewish Committee
