Jul 12, 22 Ways You Can Help Preserve the Memory of the Holocaust

There are several Holocaust memorial days held around the world each year, but Holocaust remembrance deserves more than just one day out of the year. Here are three ways to learn about and remember the tragedy of the Holocaust and its victims and survivors every day.

Meeting Survivors and Their Families

Although Holocaust survivors are aging, many are still here to tell their stories. Meeting a Holocaust survivor and hearing their story in person is an unforgettable experience that will change your perspective. If you can’t meet a survivor in person, consider arranging a virtual visit.

Reading Literature and Watching Films

Reading books and watching movies or documentaries about the Holocaust is a way to learn and remember that is accessible to everyone. Many works of literature and film have been created by and about Holocaust survivors. Keep them in mind for your next movie night or book club pick.

Visiting Museums and Memorials

Are you planning a trip to a city that hosts a Holocaust remembrance museum? Make time to visit during your stay to visit. Holocaust museums and memorials help visitors learn about the history and lessons of the Holocaust and keep the memory of its victims alive for future generations.
