Yom HaShoah — Holocaust Memorial Day — at PAU, April 2014

Article from the June 2014 Edition of Global Mental Health Newsletter

On April 28, 2014 Palo Alto University (PAU) hosted an event commemorating the 6 million Jews lost during WWII and the resistance fighters who fought to stop the Nazi killing machine.

A survivor spoke about his experiences. We have had other speakers in years past and it is always an emotional event. Honoring those who were killed for no reason other than their faith should give us pause. As you know, the killing has not stopped. We commemorated the 20th year since the Genocide Against the Tutsi in May 2014. The Middle East is torn apart by members of different sects of Muslims killing each other. Then there is Egypt, the Central African Republic, etc., etc. Hearing from people caught up in past killing fields is a way to increase knowledge and awareness with the hope of preventing more such incidents.
