Carlisle Barracks recognizes the victims of The Holocaust, and the victims
of subsequent mass atrocities, April 8th, 2013, U.S. National Holocaust
Remembrance Day. Throughout the month of April, Carlisle Barracks hosts a
series of events designed to educate, inform, recognize and remember victims
of genocide. Our theme, "Never Again, Never Again?" is intended to challenge
us to resolve intolerance of future mass atrocities.
We hope this month's speakers, movies, radio show, and trip to the Holocaust
Museum in Washington, D.C., spark recognition of past mass atrocities as
unforgivably tragic to our world community. We must understand the full
impact of mass atrocities, to include creation of security vacuums for
international terrorism, human trafficking, and other crimes against
As members of a greater world community, we must resolve that "Never Again"
be never again.
The United States Congress established the Days of Remembrance as our
nation's annual commemoration of the Holocaust and created the United States
Holocaust Memorial Museum as a permanent living memorial to the victims.
Holocaust Remembrance Day is Monday, April 8, 2013. In accordance with its
Congressional mandate, the US Holocaust Museum is responsible for leading
the nation in commemorating the Days of Remembrance, and for encouraging and
sponsoring appropriate observances throughout the United States. Carlisle
Barracks' US Army War College reverently recognizes the fallen, and
acknowledges our role to educate, inform, remember, and prevent.
