There was a time where people were killed just because they were different. The International Holocaust Remembrance Day wants us to never forget the aftermath of this genocide that annihilated millions of Jews and others who are not accepted by the myopic reign of the Nazis then.
But unfortunately, everyday as we flip through the newspapers, we might find that it is still happening, just a different version of the same tragedy. It’s time to learn from our history instead of letting history repeats itself.
Let us keep in mind, and not just on January 27, that tolerance and acceptance are the least we can do for our fellow mankind. —Photos by Agencies/text by Alisia Pek
