Letter to the United Nations
Members of our Drop-in Centre recently wrote to the Holocaust and United Nations Outreach Programme in honor of the 10th anniversary of this program. This was an important project for members who believe in the importance of Holocaust education as a way of preserving their memories and ensuring that their experiences during the Holocaust will never be forgotten. It is their hope that their slogan “Never Again” will one day apply to all people regardless of their religious beliefs or colour of their skin. To read the letter, click here.
