Terry Swartzberg, the Munich-based ethical campaigner, has been selected by the World Jewish Congress to take part in its #WeRemember campaign, which is set to be “the world’s largest Holocaust remembrance event”.
Via the social media, #WeRemember will present on January 27, 2019 – the 74th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz – photos of leading Jews, commemorative organizations and religious figures communicating two important messages:
We will never forget any of the victims of the Holocaust. Never. Ever. Not a single one.
We will fight Anti-Semitism, racism and discrimination. They caused the Holocaust – and are on the rise once more today.
In selecting Terry Swartzberg, the WJC cited his “kippa experiment”, in which Terry has been wearing a kippa – as a sign of his espousal of a joyous, unafraid Judaism – on the streets of Germany and Europe for the last six years. Also mentioned was Terry’s work for Gunter Demnig’s Stolpersteine movement, which is the world’s largest project of Holocaust commemoration.
