  • A Poem of Belief by a Jewish Prisoner in a Nazi Concentration Camp

    "I believe in the sun
    even when it is not shining
    And I believe in love,
    even when there's no one there.
    And I believe in God,
    even when he is silent.
    -– Uknown

  • Light Up the World

    "How does one mourn for six million people who died? How many candles does one light? How many prayers does one recite? Do we know how to remember the victims, their solitude, their helplessness? They left us without a trace, and we are their trace."
    -- Elie Wiesel

  • First They Came

    "First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Socialist.
    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me." --MARTIN NIEMÖLLER
