Memory is what shapes us, memory is what teaches us. We must understand that's where our redemption is. I think the important thing tounderstand about this cataclysmic event is that it happened in the heart of Europe.Germany was respected around the world for its leading scientists, its physicians, its theologians, it was a very civilized and advanced country. It was a young democracy but it was a democracy and yet it descended not only into social collapse, but world war, and eventually mass murder. A strong man came to power in Germany whose ideas were that Germany has to create a national community which would include only the Aryan race which he considered superior and all the people who did not belong to the Aryan race could be eliminated. With planning and propaganda he was able to convince most of the German people to go along with him. Insensitive to what happened to the Jews who had basically been their former neighbors, and he managed to build concentration camps, and killing centers, and finally gas chambers to annihilate six million Jews. Millions of others murdered in a systematic government-sponsored way and it's made up of so many people who participated in different ways. Who made it possible, the people who follow orders without question. Bystanders who watch and do nothing ordinary, men and women simply going with the flow.The events and the results of the Holocaust were so devastating it was anextreme that we can barely imagine, so mind-boggling that the temptations to forget and to repress. Just to put it out of mind. But we remember. We remember because it is an unthinkable scar on humanity. We need to understand what human beings are capable of. Holocaust was both, a blight on the history of humanity, but also a shining moment for the people, who were brave enough to put an end to it. First and foremost we have to remember all the victims, and that is not only the Jewish victims. Millions of innocent people who were killed because they were of the wrong religion, because they had no means of protecting themselves.It's also important to remember the rescuers. These were people who risked not only their own lives, but sometimes the lives of their family to save a fellow human beings. We also have to remember all the soldiers for fighting to win world war two and in the course of that liberated these concentration camps. Those that arrived to the camps in 1945 and werejust horrified what they saw. That was a huge task for those soldiers tohelp bring humanity back to these people, who had been dehumanized for years.I would have thought that there would never be another Holocaust. That the world was so shocked by what had happened, and the world would not permit them and yet you see what happened in Bosnia, what happened in Rwanda, what happened in in Darfur. There's still a millions of people being persecuted because of their ethnicity. it's really a moral challenge to us to do more in our own lives when we confront injustice, or hatred, or genocide. Those who suffered and died in the Holocaust, we can honor them today by not being silent. Remembering ties the past and the present together with a powerful simple thread. The important thing is that one should not become indifferent to the suffering of others. That one should not stand by and just raise one's hands and say there's nothing I can do. I'm just a little person, because I think what every one of us does matters. It's not enough to curse the darkness of the past above all we have to illuminate the future. The most important thing is to remember the humanity that is in all of us, to leave the world better place for our children.

A New York Times bestseller “Both moving and memorable, combining the emotional resolve of a memoir with the rhythm of a novel.” —New York Times Book Review In 1945, in a now-famous piece of World War II archival footage, four-year-old Michael Bornstein was filmed by Soviet soldiers as he was carried out of Auschwitz in his grandmother’s arms. Survivors Club tells the unforgettable story of how a father’s courageous wit, a mother’s fierce love, and one perfectly timed illness saved his life, and how others in his family from Zarki, Poland, dodged death at the hands of the Nazis time and again with incredible deftness. Working from his own recollections as well as extensive interviews with relatives and survivors who knew the family, Michael relates his inspirational Holocaust survival story with the help of his daughter, Debbie Bornstein Holinstat. Shocking, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting, this narrative nonfiction offers an indelible depiction of what happened to one Polish village in the wake of the German invasion in 1939. This thoroughly-researched and documented book can be worked into multiple aspects of the common core curriculum. A New York City Public Library Notable Best Book for Teens
