Holocaust Witnesses

Patricia Sullivan

The obit we ran today of Eddie Willner is the sort of story that makes even non-Jews vow "Never again." He was an amazing man and his willingness to recount a terrible moment in history serves all of society. I've used the website affiliated with the U.S. Holocaust Museum from time to time when Holocaust survivors died; many have recorded their testimonies there, as well as at the Shoah Foundation. If you haven't seen these sites, they're worth your time.

I am pretty sure that it is not just Jews who say "Never again" with reference to the Holocaust. Unfortunately, we have not done very well on that promise.

You're probably right, although I associate the vow with Holocaust survivors. We haven't done well with preventing genocide since then, either; that's why these reminders are so important.
