werememberBy Pagine Ebraiche staff

The Union of the Italian Jewish Communities has joined the #WeRemember campaign launched by the World Jewish Congress to promote the knowledge and awareness of what happened during the Shoah.

“We must remember because the ‘never again’ seems to keep on repeating itself again and again. It is a responsability of new generations to teach their friends what horrors can be generated by hatred”, explained the president of the WJC Ronald Lauder.

The initiative is among the many undertaken all over the world for International Holocaust Remembrance Day, that falls on January 27.

In order to take part in the initiative, people are invited to take a picture of themselves holding a sign that reads “#WeRemember” and to post it on their social media profiles, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.

“Anti-Semitism is more prevalent today than it has been at any time since World War II, and bigotry and discrimination still rear their ugly heads all around the world. This is why we all must declare, together, that we remember,” said WJC CEO Robert Singer.
