The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum released this powerful video on the history of the Holocaust, explaining why we must never forget and why we must never remain silent in the face of persecution.

The Holocaust took place in modern, democratic, civilized Europe – the last place one would have expected the genocide of millions of people to occur. As the video explains, if we stand silently by, it could happen again. Millions of people are still suffering around the world.

We must never forget and we must continue to share.
