To the People of New Zealand

As Elie Wiesel wrote: Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must – at that moment- become the center of the universe.

From far across the oceans, we at the Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus condemn hatred.  We condemn violence. We condemn fear being generated.  We condemn the hateful, hurtful, dangerous actions of white supremacy.  We offer resolve and hope for a brighter future, where people can coexist across religious difference, across color lines, across beliefs. We offer compassion. We offer solidarity. With the memory of the Holocaust and genocide, with a passion for the betterment of human rights, we say to you, there will be a new day. You are the center of our universe.

In solidarity,

Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus, Holocaust Museum Houston, Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center, Montreal Holocaust Museum, The Florida Holocaust Museum
