The souls of our dear departed ones, all six million of them,
are crying out to the world in a single word: "ZACHOR."
ZACHOR means REMEMBER.
And as we remember, we must also educate others,
so that the lessons of the Holocaust will inspire future generations
to recognize, combat, and ultimately extinguish the hatred that breeds genocide.
Words From Our Founder:
Over 250,000 ZACHOR Pins Have Been Distributed.
Founder and Survivor, Ben Lesser, has made it his life-long mission to provide every Holocaust speaker, Survivor and educator with a small memento to give out to their audiences as a tangible reminder of what they have heard and learned – a golden pin with the Hebrew letters of the word “ZACHOR.” Read more about ZACHOR Pins here.
Many Survivors dedicated their lives in preserving the memory of the Holocaust. Many travel throughout the world telling their journey of survival at schools, synagogues, churches and anyone who listens. We are all aging and some of us are in poor health, and that is why we are asking for your help NOW. Learn more about how you can help here.
Do you want to be part of something powerful? Here’s your chance.
To ensure the world will NEVER FORGET, we invite you to participate in an online movement where millions of silenced voices can now be heard through you. I-SHOUT-OUT, is for anyone who wants to speak out against intolerance, injustice, racism, or bullying.
By uniting together we can stop the world from acquiring amnesia. Take a stand and SHOUT-OUT for what you believe in and help us reach our goal of six million SHOUT-OUT’s to speak for the six million souls who where silenced and become part of something powerful.
