Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day)

On this day we light a candle to remember the victims of the Holocaust, to shine a light into the darkness and to say Never Again.

Jackie, Gabi and I lit a candle in memory of the many members of Jackie's extended family who perished in the Holocaust, and to acknowledge the survivors who bravely share their stories.

In these difficult and unprecedented times it is more important than ever that we come together as a community to commentate and reflect on the colossal loss of life and culture that was destroyed in the Holocaust.

This dark part of human history reminds us of the power of hatred and where it can lead if it goes unchecked.

Youth HEAR is an organisation of young people committed to mitigating hate in Australia through the memory of the Holocaust.
