I WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND A REQUEST FOR IDEAS CONCERNING THE FORMATION OF A SECOND GENERATION HOLOCAUST GROUP HERE ON STATEN ISLAND.

THIS INVITATION IS OPEN TO HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS, DESCENDANTS AND OUR FRIENDS.

AS PAINFUL AS IT MAY BE WE NEED TO STEP FORWARD AND MEMORIALIZE OUR PAST AND FOSTER A MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING BY CREATING GOALS FOR “NEVER AGAIN” TO BE A REALITY.

TOGETHER WE WILL DEVELOP STRONG KINSHIPS, PRESERVING OUR JEWISH HERITAGE AND MEMORIALIZING OUR HISTORY FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS SO NEVER AGAIN WILL A PEOPLE BE PERSECUTED JUST FOR BEING DIFFERENT.

I KNOW YOUR HURT, YOUR PAIN AND YOUR HEARTS. IT IS INHERENT FOR US TO DO GOOD FOR OTHERS, YET NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO VICTIMIZE US, TO LOOK AT OUR GOOD HEARTS AS WEAK VICTIMS.

WE ARE A STRONG PEOPLE AND OUR GOODNESS IS OUR STRENGTH. WE ARE NEVER AGAIN BE VICTIMIZED WE ARE A PEOPLE OF ONE.

JOIN ME FOR A MEETING OF SOLIDARITY.

WRITE TO ME WITH YOUR THOUGHTS TO BE CONSIDERED TOWARD THE FORMATION OF OUR GROUP. ag2together-owner@groups.aol.com
