70 Days for 70 Years
70 Days for 70 Years is designed to engage and empower participants in a global project in memory of Holocaust victims and to create a positive learning experience and build a strong Jewish identity.
In January 2015, the 70 Days for 70 Years project will begin worldwide, marking the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, engaging hundreds of thousands of Jews in an uplifting educational and memorial programme. Participants will receive a copy of a specially published book of 70 inspirational essays written by internationally renowned educators, historians and scholars – to be read, one a day. In addition, each participant will receive a memorial card giving the details of one victim of the Holocaust who they will learn in memory of. The victims’ details are being provided by Yad Vashem from their Central Database of Shoah Victims’ Names.
