The H.E.A.R.T Holocaust Research Project Table Of Contents It was once said that not remembering the Holocaust means to side with the executioners against its victims; not to remember means to kill the victims a second time; not to remember means to become an accomplice of the enemy. On the other hand, to remember means to feel compassion for the victims of all persecutions. By solemnly commemorating the tragedy of the Holocaust, we will keep history in mind, never forget the past, cherish all lives, and create a better future. Millions of souls were lost during the years of Nazi tyranny, and their passing has made the world a poorer place.

For elementary school students (ages 9-12) GHDI - Document Over fourteen years have passed since that unhappy day when the German people, blinded by promises made by those at home and abroad, forgot the highest values of our past, of the Reich, of its honor and its freedom, and thereby lost everything. Since those days of treason, the Almighty has withdrawn his blessing from our nation. Discord and hatred have moved in. Filled with the deepest distress, millions of the best German men and women from all walks of life see the unity of the nation disintegrating in a welter of egoistical political opinions, economic interests, and ideological conflicts. As so often in our history, Germany, since the day the revolution broke out, presents a picture of heartbreaking disunity.
The Holocaust The genocide perpetrated against European Jews during World War II carries several names. In the west we generally know it as the Holocaust, a word taken from an ancient Greek term meaning ‘everything burned’. Many Jews know it as Shoah, a Hebrew word meaning ‘catastrophe’. The Nazis who carried out this mass murder used its benign operational title: the ‘Final Solution to the Jewish Question in Europe’. But none of these names and labels conveys the enormity of this disastrous event, the complexity of its causes or the oceans of human suffering and despair it created. Under the cloak of war, the Nazis manufactured an ideology then an apparatus to achieve the extermination of an entire race.
