Matthew Hart Leonard, grandson of Walter Less and great-grandson of Leopold and Anna Less, is reflected viewing the two remaining barracks and, quite possibly, his great-grandfather’s.
And so, the mission to ensure none of us forget what happened to the Jewish people and to remind us of our moral responsibility to fight hatred, racism and genocide is passed on to a new generation.
Dr. Elie Wiesel, Nobel Peace Prize Recipient and author of “Night” (1928–2016)
“I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.
There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest … to remain silent and indifferent is the greatest sin of all … Just as despair can come only from other human beings, hope, too, can be given to one only by other human beings.”
