What You Can Learn

The Shoah
The Shoah was a crime against all humankind. Education is a key component in combating the various forms of intolerance that still regrettably persist and unfortunately have increased in our world today. Hopefully, our educational efforts will not only bring light to the darkness, but will fortify our collective resolve to counter intolerance in its many forms.

A Shoah Story

Warsaw, Jewish girls, stripped of everything by the Gestapo, are commanded to prepare themselves for the pleasure of Nazi soldiers. Rather than submit to this, they follow the path of martyrs who preceded them: they pour out their hearts in a final prayer and they swallow poison.

A Prayer
Kaddish is a true act of kindness and has been an important part of Jewish mourning rituals for centuries.

Simon Wiesenthal
Simon Wiesenthal, a survivor of the Nazi death camps, dedicated his life to documenting the crimes of the Holocaust and to hunting down the perpetrators still at large. “When history looks back,” Wiesenthal explained, “I want people to know the Nazis weren’t able to kill millions of people and get away with it.” His work stands as a reminder and a warning for future generations. 

Just as the sunflower was a symbol of hope, change, and a better future for Simon Wiesenthal, so it is for One More Candle.

“The end was surely near. The Nazis killed you only when you were naked, because they knew, psychologically, that naked people never resist.”

“Survival is a privilege which entails obligations. I am forever asking myself what I can do for those who have not survived.” – Simon Wiesenthal
