I think that sometimes people feel the Holocaust is a “Jewish” issue and because it’s been 70 years since it happened, the only people who still care (or who should care) are Jews. I wanted to challenge that. The Holocaust is a human rights issue, an equality issue. It’s about defeating any type of prejudice that still exists in the world.
