Fort hosts annual Holocaust observance

The Military Equal Opportunity Office in conjunction with the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence invites the public to participate in a Days of Remembrance observance at 1 p.m. Tuesday in Fitch Auditorium here.

Dr. Samuel Caron, a psychologist at the Raymond W. Bliss Army Health Center, will address this year’s theme, “Never Again: Heeding the Warning Signs.”
This year’s theme is a challenge to think about what might motivate people to respond to warning signs of genocide today.

“Memory is what shapes us. Memory is what teaches us. We must understand that’s where our redemption is,” says Holocaust survivor Estelle Laughlin.
History teaches that genocide can be prevented if people care to act. The response to hatred does matter and together communities can fulfill the promise of “Never Again.”

Congress established the Days of Remembrance in 1980 as the nation’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust. This year, Days of Remembrance are observed April 7-14.
