Courage to Remember

The Courage to Remember, the Simon Wiesenthal Center's 40-panel, traveling exhibition on the Nazi Holocaust, has been seen on six continents by millions of people and continues to be displayed in cities across the United States, in Asia and Africa.

The Exhibit

Six million Jews and millions of others, including Gypsies, Slavs, political dissenters, homosexuals, P.O.W.'s and the mentally ill and infirm were murdered by the Nazis between 1933 and 1945. The Nazi policy of racial hatred moved with relentless cruelty from hateful propaganda to mass murder, culminating in the extermination of European Jewry and culture.

The magnitude of brutality, the remorseless cruelty, and the cold industrial character of mass murder during the Holocaust are unique. However, the root causes of the Holocaust persist.

Racial hatred, economic crises, human psychological and moral flaws, the complacency or complicity of ordinary individuals in the persecution of their neighbors are still ominously common.

Thus we must have the courage to remember and study the Holocaust, no matter how disturbing these studies and memories may be. For only informed, understanding, and morally committed individuals can prevent such persecution from happening against

The persecution of people is always and everywhere intolerable and to act against it is a beginning for hope.

“The Courage to Remember” is both a tribute and a warning; a tribute to the six million Jews and millions of others, including Gypsies, Slavs, political dissenters, homosexuals, and prisoners of war, who were murdered by the Nazis between 1933 and 1945; and a warning that the root causes of the Holocaust persist.

Racial hatred, economic crises, human psychological and moral flaws, the complacency or complicity of ordinary individuals in the persecution of their neighbors are still ominously common. Remembrance, vigilance and moral commitment are required if the lives of the victims of the Holocaust are to have an enduring meaning.
