Default Air Force Logo And You Shall Teach Your Children….
For some time I’ve been interested in, and somewhat passionate about, Holocaust education. That was not always the case. I am Jewish and I was always aware that my maternal grandfather’s family vanished without a trace during World War II. They were from Riga, Latvia and apparently, the Holocaust swallowed them up. No one could help the family find them, not the Red Cross, not any of the other organizations that assisted families after the war. This is tragic, but if I’m to be honest, it wasn’t an issue for me. I was a child, teenager, and a young adult who had issues to deal with in the here and now. As I continued to mature and went out into the world, the Holocaust started to become more of a “topic” for me. The more I saw, read, and experienced, the more I realized that this was a period of history that we could not allow to fade into oblivion.
