About Us
Will tomorrow’s children even know about the Holocaust?

Join the popular new custom of lighting a personal memorial candle in memory of one of the six million who perished, this eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day.
Unfortunately, survivors will no longer be here to share their story.
It is up to us.
Continue the annual tradition of lighting a personal memorial candle together with family and friends. We are keeping their memory alive this year and next year, ensuring the collective memory of the six million will continue for generations to come.
Experience a personal connection by reflecting upon and discussing the life of the person whom you are remembering.
You choose who to remember – a relative, a hero or a person by chance.

Activities

The Names Remembered database contains over 300,000 names, a resource provided by the public – survivors, family members, acquaintances of the victims, young schoolchildren, communities and reputable internet sources.

Our 6 Million non-profit organization has been operating since 2013. Since then, millions of personal memorial candles have been lit – in homes, schools, public agencies, IDF units, the Knesset of Israel, the President’s House; and various organizations, companies and public institutions.

The custom is widely practiced in Israel, and has become more popular over the years in communities around the world, mainly the United States.

Glimpse into the life of a person by reading about their life on your candle label AND by scanning the QR code, accessing more information about their life story.
