    • This week is Holocaust remembrance week. Lessons learned from The Holocaust: we have learned how one person can make a difference.  We have learned to not allow hatred to win. We have learned the importance of humanity and respect the differences in others.  We have learned the dangers of staying silent and allowing evil to be done to another person or groups of people and the responsibility to tell the truth.  We have learned that without education, history can repeat itself.
