This worldwide Holocaust memorial project is designed to perpetuate the memory of the Six Million – among them 1.5 million Jewish children – murdered while the world remained silent.
Every year during the Days of Remembrance, the AHEC participates by enlisting your participation in this special project.
Through the public recitation of the names of children who lost their lives during the Holocaust, we not only memorialize them, but help to restore their identity and dignity. Six Million is no longer an intangible figure, but a person with an identity to be remembered.
Hundreds of thousands of names will be spoken and remembered. It is a very simple idea that has had a profound effect on its participants.
