As the years go by, we
move further away from the Holocaust. The number of survivors drops, and
it becomes increasingly difficult to remind the world of the horrors
they went through.
Three leading American Jews have decided to undertake the important mission of preventing the world from forgetting. Filmmaker Steven Spielberg,
World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder
and Israeli-American media tycoon Haim Saban
have joined the organization coordinating the memorial ceremonies
marking the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau
concentration and extermination camps by the Soviet Army.
