The Holocaust was the catastrophic murder of eleven million human beings between 1938 and 1945. Six million of those victims were Jewish. Five million others were persecuted for their religious beliefs, political views, sexual orientation, or physical and mental disabilities. Our pledge is that none of these victims be forgotten. Our lesson is that so long as any are persecuted, no one is free.
