I light my candle in memory of my grandmother, uncle and his family, aunt and her family and all the cousins I had but I never knew. My candle is crying with me for all the love we all missed. I pray for the new generation. Nobody should have the right to take from our kids the love of a family.

My four year old daughter will also participate. It's so important for us to teach our children, so they too, pass on to their children the remembrance of the victims and survivors of the holcaust.

The honor I have in lighting this candle in memory of all of the loved ones that were taken from their families..is very special for me. My parents were born in Mexico and came to the US in the 1920's and I am very proud of my Mexican heritage. When I see them rounding up the immigrants, placing them in handcuffs and putting them in vans or trucks to be taken away....all I could think of is what the nazis did to people because of their race that the nazis considered less than human. My heart and my prayers are with the survivors of the Holocaust and their children, and I want to thank you for giving me this opportunity to share my thoughts with all of you on this very special Day ... to remember all of those beautiful souls...today and always. I would also like to share with all of you....that I have the honor and privilege of communicating with Inge Auerbacher, a beautiful survivor.. and Irene Gut Opdyke's Daughter, Jeanne, both are continuing to share their lives and their stories so that others will never allow hatred and prejudice to continue. Sincerely and Muchas Muchas Gracias.. Marge Pineda

I observe this day to never forget what happened. To honor those who have died because the rest of the world did not intervene. I observe this day to show my children that human race is capable of horrible actions. May they never forget, and may they be responsible enough, to not let this happened under their watch. I pray for my children, and the vote of confidence I've put in them to be kind and respectful towards others.

About 12 years ago I took a class at Kent State about teaching the Holocaust. I then attended the Belfer Conference at the USHMM. From then on, every year I taught a Holocaust unit in my language arts classes and I had the honor and priviledge of meeting quite a few survivors and righteous Gentiles who came to speak to my students. Each story broke my heart and inspired my teaching. I am now retired, and when asked what I miss most, I say, "My Holocaust Unit." I hope those I taught never forget. I know I won't.

I respect and honor those that went before me and those that survived. I feel there is to little education and awarness made about what clearly was a tragic event. Pastor Niemöller’s quote says it best, speak out for those I see being done wrong for one day I may need someone to speak for me. My candle will be lite.
