Elie Wiesel: If The Holocaust Is Forgotten, 'Dead Will Be Killed A Second Time'

May 5, 2011

The Days of Remembrance, the nation's annual commemoration of the Holocaust, continue through Sunday.

AOL's "You've Got" video series offers this short video essay from Nobel Peace Prize laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel.

"We owe it not only to the living," he says of the need to remember the killing of 6 million Jews during the Nazi Holocaust, but to those who died as well.

"If we forget, the dead will be killed a second time," Wiesel says, "and then they are today's victims." Copyright 2011 National Public Radio. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.
