…more people died in World War II than any other war in history? Both civilian and military casualties, it equals approximately the entire 2013 population of New York, New Jersey and California combined.
In six years of war 70 million people died. Military accounted for 1/3 of the casualties. That means 2/3 of the dead were civilians- like the 6 million Jews who were murdered.
If we do not endeavor to remember the sobering facts of our past, especially wars, we are more likely to repeat it. That is one reason for AHI. Let’s remember the people who experienced but lived through the Holocaust. Make sure there is not another one.
