Over a few decades, ‘The duty to remember’ has become the standard term, an appeal to citizens to preserve and pass on the stories of those who lost their lives in the armed conflicts of the 20th century. Those who were victims of genocide perpetrated in Europe by Nazi criminals. The duty to remember is also promoted so that crimes against humanity, and all attacks on human dignity which have scarred our communities, are never forgotten.
In a few words and a few images this short video tells us about the mission of the association. ‘The Children of Sam’ association was inspired by Sam Braun’s educational work with students in dozens of institutions for more than twenty years.
