PRESERVING THE LESSONS OF THE PAST TO BUILD A FUTURE OF TOLERANCE

People forget how bad hatred is. It can become a habit. I was imprisoned in Auschwitz. For a long time I didn’t want to talk about my experiences, but now I understand that I must. We need to fight hate. This is what I would leave as my legacy: to remember that hate is a terrible thing.

REMEMBERING THE HOLOCAUST
