Holocaust Remembrance Day

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Today we remember the millions murdered 70 years ago. They were murdered not because they committed any specific crimes, but because they were who they were.

Jews, Gypsies, Communists, Homosexuals. They were all murdered because they chose to be true to who they were, instead of conforming to the society around them.

We say never again, but history continues to repeat itself.

Bosnia, Darfur, Syria. Millions of people are still murdered simply because of who they are, because of hate and prejudice.

Some might say that we don’t need to talk about the Holocaust anymore, that we have learned from the past.

We have not learned from the past.

We will continue to say never again, until we can finally say never again.
