A video tribute to some of the brilliant lives that survived Nazi brutality.
The Holocaust — the mass murder of some six million Jews by the Nazi regime in Germany during World War II — is among the greatest horrors that one group of humans has ever forced upon another. We are resolved never to forget the atrocities that happened in the Nazi concentration camps, but we also remember and celebrate the lives and accomplishments of those who survived. We salute those like Elie Wiesel, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work as an author, lecturer and educator, as well as Simon Wiesenthal, who dedicated his life to pursuing Nazi perpetrators who’d escaped justice. On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we pause to honor both those who died and those who survived to continue enriching our world with their stories, talents, and wisdom.
