The 2013 Days of Remembrance theme, Never Again: Heeding the Warning Signs, looks back at the events of 1938 and the momentous changes that were happening in Central Europe. Why did so many countries and individuals fail to respond to the warning signs? And what can we learn from the few who chose to act, despite widespread indifference? As we reflect on these questions, we remember all whose lives were lost or forever altered by the Holocaust. And we are challenged to think about what might motivate us to respond to warning signs of genocide today.
