« In my “work of remembrance” I put all my effort, as we all should, into young people. To show them the horrors they could be lead to, as many of their forebears were. To show what happens when there is inaction in the face of injustice, exclusion and barbarity. In this ‘“work of remembrance” we must also remind young people that the executioners were ordinary people, just like any of us. So, we must be vigilant as to how we respond to others, so we do not in turn become their executioners. » 


Sam Braun’s arrest in 1943

"We were arrested 12 November, 1943 after the day of November 11 that I will never forget … On 12 November, at 6.30 in the morning, we were arrested. My father had been warned we would be arrested, but like many Jews at that time, he didn’t believe it."
