This is a wonderful idea

The names of those who died in the Holocaust are being collected for a memorial. There is a late rush to record all the names and stories before the remaining survivors die, and the information is lost.

It's wonderful that this is happening. There is something Jews often say -- to the world, to the future: "We must never forget." Truer words were never spoken. The day we forget this lesson is the day we lose our humanity.
