#WeRemember: WJC reaching out to millions on social media in campaign to raise awareness of Holocaust

Ahead of International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27, the World Jewish Congress (WJC) has launched a global campaign encouraging millions of people to speak out on social media, to raise awareness about the Holocaust. The campaign calls on people in every country to hold up a sign with the words “We Remember,” and post it to social media with the hashtag #WeRemember. The campaign took off on Monday, January 9, and has already garnered thousands of positive responses.

“Anti-Semitism is more prevalent today than it has been at any time since World War II, and bigotry and discrimination still rear their ugly heads all around the world. This is why we all must declare, together, that we remember,” said WJC CEO Robert Singer.

“The goal is to reach those who don’t know much about the Holocaust, or who might be susceptible to those who deny it entirely, and to remind the world that such horrors could happen again. Using the tools of social media we hope to engage the next generation, because, soon, it will be their responsibility to tell the story and ensure that humanity never forget."

"We hope to reach out to millions of people, in honor of each and every victim of the Holocaust,” Singer added. “As the World Jewish Congress, it is our responsibility to speak out and make sure that it never happen again, to anyone or anywhere in the world.”

Thousands of supporters have already joined the campaign, uploading photos of themselves to social media with “We Remember signs” in dozens of languages. Campaign participants are encouraged to post the photographs directly to their Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram accounts, along with the hashtag #WeRemember, or emai to weremember@wjc.org. All of the uploaded photos can be seen here: https://tagboard.com/weremember/338063.

To remember is good,i remember Erna Löwenstein, called Sarah, who once walked from Auschwitz to Bergen Belsen before she died on the day when the allerts arrived. Erna Löwenstein was the daughter in law of my great-great-grandmother Carolina Goldstein, who was brought into Hospital with high fever like influenzia in world war II, she was brought into Hospital , and she was never be seen again. It is good to remember all this, esspecially in These days. William Windsor married exactly 66 years after Adolf Hitler, cause William loves (6) Hitler. William Windsor is the 666, the beast, he is on January 20 in US power. Mike Pence was Born in Columbus Indiana, Donald Trump was Born in Queens. Connect this cities and do the horus-eye to the North, then you come to Williamsford. William is Lucifer, the antichrist aka Nebukadnezar aka Adolf Hitler, brought into power with friendly help from Sir EVelyn Rothschild from London and jeweler Zadok the priest from Houston Texas. It is good to remember the holocaust and it is time to finish Diaspora and do Aliyah, if you are jewish, cause Sir Evelyn Rothschild wants Wiiliam WIndsor to built Beit hamikdash in Jeusalem. Lucifer WIlliam shall be the KIng and Baal, the tingod once defeated by ELIYAH, shall be the God of Israel. So to say, Zadok and Evelyn Rothschild want a devil to be God and Lucifer to be King.

The antisemitic actions are heavily financed by the international terrorists` supporters. In the Eastern Europe , the former communist secret services employees, most of them pensioned off, are part of a constant antisemitic propaganda . Hatred is spread also through speeches held in churches , by distortion of the reality . Many believers do not even know that the BIBLE was written in Hebrew , that JESUS was a JEW , that his mother Saint Mary was a JEWISH woman, that Saint John the Baptist was a JEW ,that all the Apostles were JEWS , the the Archangels Gabriel and Michael were also JEWS etc...
