Youth’s commitment to commemoration – let us work with you!
Created by Europe’s young:
Videos, poems, songs, posters and much more inspiring them and their societies to commemoration.
Commitments made by Europe’s young:
To keep the 110,000 Stolpersteine shining brightly.
To research and tell these victims’ stories.
Europe’s young have deployed their creativity and commitment to the rejuvenation of commemoration – and given it thus a reach and power encompassing and mobilizing all of society.
Thanks to our workshops and internships.
Our objective: to work with you, your congregations and your young in making the commemoration of the Holocaust a mission for all of the USA.
