a candle for remembrance


 
Lighting a candle for remembrance once again on this Holocaust Remembrance Day, the 77th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

“When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men or women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must—at that moment—become the center of the universe,”

Words of the late Elie Wiesel, author, humanitarian and survivor of Auschwitz, described as a “messenger to mankind” when he received his Nobel Peace Prize in 1986.
