It is among the most horrific moments in history. The Holocaust was Nazi Germany’s attempt to murder all of Europe’s Jews from 1933-45. Before the Nazis were defeated, six million Jews were murdered — including 1.5 million children. Five million non-Jews were killed.

Ever since, people throughout the world have struggled to understand the legacy of the Holocaust. That’s what this magazine is all about — remembering the Holocaust, so that another tragedy like it will never happen again. In these pages, you’ll hear the stories of the people who experienced the Holocaust — the victims and perpetrators; the people who spoke out against Nazi atrocities and those who didn’t.

What are the consequences of silence in the face of hatred and bigotry? Martin Niemoller, a Lutheran minister who opposed the Nazis, described it this way: “In Germany, they came first for the Communists and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. . . . Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.”
