What will the memory of the Holocaust look like in future generations?
In about 15 years, there will be no Holocaust survivors with us, so how will we remember?
Will we remember through history books, whether through video testimonials, whether through podcasts, or in some other way
Can it work? It is possible, but the test of reality today, indicates that the chances of it succeeding are very small.
Even today when there are more survivors with us, memory is not widely found in discourse or thought, we remember that we must, but in practice prefer to repress, and this happens when there are still survivors with us and when we are allowed to "feel" the memory indirectly, through them.
What will happen when such a memory is not with us, we have already said that passive memory remains in memory 20% of the time compared to active memory that remains 80% of the time.
The memory must move on - if to this day the memory dealt with trauma, we must move on to an empowering and inspiring memory - everyday heroism.
Let's ask ourselves, What dates do we remember more?
Purim or XNUMXth of Tammuz - Hanukkah or XNUMXth of Av - Passover or XNUMXth of Tevet
Everyone is important, but what date do we remember more? Apparently Purim, Hanukkah, Pesach - what they have in common is the active and empowering memory that takes place as part of these holidays. We celebrate the holiday, but not from a place of fasting and difficulty, but from a place of empowerment, heroism and overcoming.
Holocaust remembrance cannot be a religious "holiday", the Holocaust remembrance must be a "holiday" for everyone, of Jews and non-Jews, Allow everyone to take part in active and empowering memory Who remembers the heroism of the human spirit, remembers asked in the face of very great hatred, one can find mental strengths and do a little more for the other.
only Imagine a situation where 51% of the world's population remembers the Holocaust from a place that allows them to find mental strength to do a little more for the other, Not to succumb to a discourse of hatred and violence, but to succeed in thinking how one can do for one another, a memory that we are all together in this world.
When that happens, a second Holocaust will not happen, neither to us nor to any other people.
In the heroic parade we seek to produce active experiences that will enhance this memory, and in fact assimilate it into simple everyday actions that can be easily remembered - simple and empowering volunteers that help make our world a better place.
