One student from last year‟s event writes, "I felt it was my generation that would have to stop the hatred. Hatred is what started the Holocaust… Hatred can start something like the Holocaust again. It’s up to my generation to make sure hatred is not in our world.” Students learn to apply the lessons from the Holocaust survivors to become “upstanders” (those who stand up for their neighbors) instead of bystanders.


“NEVER AGAIN”!


The Holocaust Remembrance Program is coordinated by JCY-Westchester Community Partners in partnership with the Yonkers Public Schools and is sponsored by Lincoln Park Jewish Center and the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center Speakers Bureau (Susan Rothschild).The Yonkers Public Schools generously provides free bus transportation for its students.
