LATHAM, N.Y. - Members of the New York National Guard Joint Force Headquarters observed the National Days of Remembrance here April 10 to remember the Holocaust. Soldiers and Airmen attended the Holocaust “Days of Remembrance” and viewed videos provided by the Holocaust Museum. The videos, including topics such as “Why we remember the Holocaust” and “Heeding the Warning Signs,” examine the events of 1938 and the impact they had on individuals targeted by Nazi persecution. The program provided an opportunity for reflection and discussion on the Holocaust 75 years later. The intent was to challenge members to consider their own response to warning signs of genocide today, said Master Sgt. Donna Torres, the JFHQ Equal Opportunity Specialist and a coordinator for the program. Choices in response to hatred truly matter, Torres explained and together we can help fulfill the promise of “Never Again.”
