Why We Remember the Holocaust
This short video produced by the The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum describes the events of the Holocaust in the words of both survivors and modern scholars. The video also discusses the importance of commemorating those consumed by this horrific tragedy and the reason for the National Days of Remembrance. In the words of Holocaust Survivor Estelle Laughlin, "[It's] not enough to curse the darkness of the past. Above all, we have to illuminate the future," for only by doing so can we "leave the world better for our children and for posterity."
