GSF Founder and president, Jacqueline Murekatete, joined Anita Weisbord, Holocaust survivor and educator, Rachid Murad, Chief of staff for the commission on Global security, Justice and Governance at the Hague Institute and Beth Lilach, Senior Director of Education and Community Affairs at the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County in a program to commemorate Kristallnacht.
The program centered around the theme: Preventing Genocide: How You Can Be An Upstander Against Evil, and discussed how the audience members could apply the lessons of the Holocaust in fighting hate and intolerance today. GSF founder and fellow panelists spoke strongly against indifference and being a bystander in the presence of evil and urged audience members to be vigilant in fighting hate and all forms of extremist ideologies which enable genocide and other forms of mass atrocity crimes to take place.
The program concluded with the planting of daffodils in memory of the 1.5 million Jewish children who were murdered during the Holocaust.« Back to News + Blog
