U.S. Holocaust Remembrance Day

It’s now been 72 years since the liberation of the Nazi death camps.

On April 24, people around the world will pause to remember the 11 million victims — six million of them Jews  – who died at the hands of the Nazi regime.

Holocaust Remembrance Day reflects on one the darkest chapters in the history of mankind, a chapter the world should never be allowed to forget.

Marvin Scott speaks with Sally Frishberg, a Holocaust survivor and Bill Tingling, an activist who created the nationwide “Words of Bonds” project whose aim is to spread message of tolerance and empathy through education.
