THE #NEVERAGAIN CHALLENGE
 
Hatred, genocide and holocausts are only possible with the dehumanizing contempt bred through leveraging ignorance. Forcibly branding humans with registration tattoos was a tool not just for Nazi efficiency, but to re-enforce Supremacy over the many peoples sent to and killed in concentration camps in Europe in front of the eyes of the world. In an era that lacked today’s pervasive media sharing, convenient ignorance allowed world leaders to turn their backs on these crimes against all of us until it was no longer politically expedient to do so.
 
In the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, there are those in this generation that deny the holocaust ever happened, and even claim reporting to be a deliberate massive hoax.  This has been true of every genocide throughout history, even to the point where it can take the world 100 years to agree that attempts at mass exterminations of human beings were, indeed, genocide.
 
Edmund Burke, George Santayana and Winston Churchill have all reminded us with similar thoughts of “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Just about every country has one or more genocide in its history, whether displacement and murder of indigenous peoples (like American Indians and Australian Aborigines) or scapegoating (Jews in Russia and Germany) to accumulate power at the cost of the weak, or simple religious persecution like the Moors in Spain.  Yet, our children are raised without sufficient awareness of these horrible deeds to be armed with the knowledge that can help them recognize and fight against these affronts to human dignity like hate speech painted on the walls of churches and temples of every nature, to violence against those who differ racially, sexually, ableness, in appearance, language, nationality and so many more attributes.
 
Providing tools and knowledge to sustainably battle against the rise of hate built on ignorance, Voices for Truth and Humanity advocates for comprehensive holocaust and genocide curriculum in our schools.
 
Participation in the #NeverAgain challenge is your chance to spread awareness there is work to be done and people doing that work, to ensure we the people have the knowledge and the will power to stop hate and supremacy movements in their tracks.
