Holocaust Remembrance Day (2017)

#We Remember

International Holocaust Remembrance Day: We remember, so we don’t forget. This is what millions of people around the world are doing today. Remembering. Not Forgetting. These two photos, which I took a few years ago, show the Holocaust Memorial (i.e., the Holocaust Memorial Flame) at Earl Bales Park in Toronto, which was unveiled in 1991. It also includes a Wall of Remembrance. The Canadian Society for Yad Vashem writes: “The site stands as a permanent reminder of the Holocaust’s devastating toll on the Jewish people. It is the Canadian Jewish community’s public symbol of respect for the memories of those who perished in the Shoah and a tribute to the legacy of the Shoah’s Survivors.”
