Holocaust Remembrance Day
Dear College Community,
Elie Wiesel once said "there may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest".
Today, on Holocaust Remembrance Day, we protest by remembering not only the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust, but by sharing its history to preserve the lessons that remind us that anti-Semitism and intolerance have no place in the fabric of humanity.
We protest the darkest of times and its legacy of injustice and inhumanity by embracing our collective and individual responsibility to educate ourselves and others especially as we face a rising tides of hate speech, hate crimes, disinformation, and anti-Semitism.
We protest and are at our most powerful when we stand for respect and tolerance and when we stand in solidarity with our Jewish brothers and sisters and each other. Let us remember, and act.
