The Gedenk Movement (Remember!)
A humanitarian campaign to raise youth awareness about genocide through art and education.
Gedenk is a word that means “remember” in Yiddish, a language that died along with the six million Jews that perished in the Holocaust. Gedenk is a movement established in 2006 as a humanitarian campaign that promotes youth education about anti-Semitism and the Jewish Holocaust.
Gedenk will use commercial outlets, i.e. music, dance, billboards and celebrities, to communicate its message and make the Jewish Holocaust relevant to today’s youth. Those that do not speak up are as guilty as the criminals themselves!
Our broader mission is to educate the youth and the general population about the consequences of bigotry and hatred- from the Armenian genocide, during World War I, the Jewish and Roma Holocaust of World War II, Rwanda in the 1990s, to Darfur today.
We believe it is no longer acceptable to remain silent, for it is today’s generation that is responsible for remembering the history of the world and insuring that such heinous crimes will never be tolerated again.
“My father and mother lost most of their family in Iran and in Tunis. They found refuge in the land of Israel at 1948, leaving everything they had behind. With everything that’s going on in the world today, my mission is to make my country a better place to live in. In order to do so, we must take the lessons that we have learned from past events, especially with Iran’s agenda to deny that the Holocaust never happened, and remember that such tragic events must not be repeated!
