The Holocaust 1933-1945.
Now and forever enshrined in memory are the
six million Jewish martyrs who perished in concentration camps, ghettos, and
gas chambers. In their deepest agony they clung to the image of humanity,
and their acts of resistance in the forests and ghettos redeemed the honor
of man. Their suffering and heroism are forever branded upon our
conscience and shall be remembered from generation to generation.
