I think that the whole thing behind the holocaust is very memorable. To hear what these people had to go through makes me stand for my nation even more and have much respect. I really would like to visit one day when I travel. At my school, the topic comes up often in history class and it takes much interest of me.

This is something that is not new to me. I was in High School in the early to mid seventies and our history books still had history of WW11 in them. But no matter how many times I hear something of The Holocaust it hits me as it did when I was first learning about it in school. It is a deep sorrow in the pit of my stomach and an ache in my heart. I would like to think that I would have been one of those brave souls who helped the jews to freedom. One thing that I will never understand is how one very evil man, "Hitler" had so much influence over a whole nation, and breed so much hatred against our fellow man. I wish I could meet every one of you! My son who is only 31 just recently met a holocaust survivor in Cleveland, Ohio while he was working on his garage door, he invited him and his coworker in and told them his story. My son said he had a hard time keeping the tears back. He said I will never feel like I have something to complain about again. Michael said this man changed his life forever and is his hero. Michael thught that the reason he wanted to talk and share his story is because he was lonley. When I hear stories that some people are talking about having The Holocaust not taught in schools because it might offend some "races" who believe it never happened makes my blood boil. This should never be allowed to happen. Some day I hope to be able to visit the museum. Thank you for sharing your story!

Very early on on my childhood I took a very strong interest in the Holocaust. Although I may have been exposed to the genocide at what was probably too young of an age, my later age curiosity eventually lead me to this website. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, experiences, and legacy with the world.

I think you should learn about the holocaust because its important so you think about it and wonder how innocent people got the blame for something so stupid.Also i this no matter if you hate some one dont blame everyone for what that person did or caused.

My name is Nazli and i'm 15. I just moved from Iran to U.S for 8-9 months befre I came here I did not know about Holocaust because Iran is a Islamic country ,so they don't teach people anything about Holocaust , so when I came here I watch alots of movies and i read the book NIGHT by ELI WISEL .... and i joind to some Holocaust groups , I think I could know Holocaust before but why not ????????????????
That' why i think that it is necessary to teach holocaust,it is necessary to remember it ,remind it and Never forget it......

I am a high school senior, this year I took a class devoted to the study of the Holocaust. My teacher told me at the beginning of the year that this class would change me, and it has. I have read books, stidied documents, seen films, I have been to the Holocaust museum twice, participated in a remembrace service called Yom HaShoah, and met and listened to survivors. Yet still when I sit and think about what really happened, when I attempt to take it all in, I can't. Because it was that terrible. The numbers are breath taking, and the films and pictures will make your head swim and your stomach clench. Yet people survived to tell the story. We study history so we can see what our ancestors did, what they did right and what they did wrong, so that we don't make the same mistakes they did. We say 'Never again.' But if we don't know what happened, how can we say that? We must study the Holocaust, we must remember. The greatest thing we can do for those who died at the hands of the Nazis, and for those who survived, is remember, and never allow it to happen again.

I'm making a book for my history class and i found this website. I started looking at the holocaust survivors storys and i just can not believe everything that they went through and they actually survived. These people are so incredible. Their stories ar eso heartfelt and i just about cried just watching these videos and reading what was written on this site. I could not even begin to fanthom everything that they went through and if that was me i would not know what to do at all. All of you are very couragous and i hope the best for you all. thank you and god bless.

The truth of the war is terrible, and to see the survivors to get back up and rebuild their lives is amazing. I've been doing a project for school about WWII and the facts are just un-real.

That is so sad what happen to the people that lived back in the days the holocaust happened. I just can't image all the things they had to go threw. Not being able to maintain a normale life, or not being able to see their family members,it is so deffical but i just can't image living like that. I just hope that is dosent come back and we have to deal with that cause i woulden't know what to do.

These stories were so touching I went to an Holocaust museum in my area. I met Holocaust survivors and actually learned a lot from them. They are such an inspiration for every race, creed, and color. I love the stories and they really touched my heart.
