In Memoriam - The Holocaust


Europe, 1945, These Pictures Cannot be Erased!

"Our motto must be, In spite of despair, hope must exist. In spite of suffering, humanity must prevail. And in spite of all the differences in the world, the worst enemy, the worst peril, is indifference." Elie Wiesel

We all get tons of email. Personal. Professional. Spam. Jokes and funny pictures. Newsletters we've subscribed to and some we haven't.

If you're like me, you get chain letters too. I always delete those, no matter how much bad karma they warn I'll incur.

Not this time.

I got a different kind of chain letter this week. One I passed on to friends and am sharing here. It's about the worst karma in the history of the world -- The Holocaust.

This chain letter doesn't ask for anything or predict doom or promise great riches. It's simply a call to remember. And to assure, as Jews say,
Never Again.

I urge you to copy and paste the following words into an email, along with the picture and caption above, then send it to others.
IN MEMORIAM

60 years after the Second World War ended, an email is being sent as a memorial chain.

It is launched during Passover – the Jewish Holiday of Freedom – and will circulate until Holocaust Memorial Day, in memory of the six million Jews who were massacred during the Holocaust.

This email is intended to reach six million people around the world.

Join us, be a link in the memorial chain and help us meet that goal.

Send this email to 6 people you know and ask them to continue the memorial chain.
There's so much hate and evil and killing and dying in the world today. One small email won't do much to stop that. But we have to start somewhere.

This is a great site, and I'm going to keep reading you. I'm also going to do the chain letter. Thanks for posting it.

It's great to know that there are people out there that continue to remember the Holocaust. I am a grandchild of 3/4 grandparents who have survived the camps of the Holocaust. I've heard each of there stories, and how they lost everything from parents, siblings, and granparents, to every possesion they owned.It hurts me to know that to this day people deny that the Holocaust ever happened..It discusses me!.. This chain letter is great!

We all agree that Holocast was terrible and should be remembered, etc.
However, it doesn' justify spreading the erroneous chain letter.
Please check the urbanlegend site or similar sites to check if it is true:
