A Passion for Human Rights

In a short time the survivors of the Holocaust will have joined its victims, and that great catastrophe will be but a footnote in the history books. To our children, to a new generation who may regard the Holocaust as remote and difficult to understand, let us, while we are still able to do so, pass on the memory of the Holocaust as a living experience.

– Gerda Schild Haas, 1982
