“Thus, in remembering them [those murdered in the Shoah], we remember today’s victims too. We remember our hunger so as to eliminate starvation. We remember our anguish so as to proclaim the right of men and women everywhere to live without fear. We remember our death, so as to denounce the insanity of violence and the absurdity, the ugliness, the shame of war.”

-Elie Wiesel

Our advocacy work focuses on contemporary issues, such as physician involvement in human rights abuses and the prevention of torture and genocide. In addition, the Project works to ensure the proper respect and care for contemporary survivors of the Holocaust and other genocides.
