About Us

To forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time
Elie Wiesel, "Night"

Our goal is to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive for all the future generations

When lighting your candle, we respectfully ask you to:
• Focus on and imagine their LIFE – before they became victims. Their name, face and identity that the Holocaust attempted to erase.
• Emphasize how we are securing a better future for all, by remembering.
• Consider your personal responsibility to actively :
– collect names
– commemorate the lives lost
– participate in building our collective memory
– create the torchbearers of the future.

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.

How can this be accomplished?

We are committed :

• To further instill this custom within the diverse global Jewish communities
• To increase the database of Names Remembered until every perished is remembered
• To develop more interactive activities as well as lesson plans for participants of all ages


Thank you to all the organization’s (Shem Vener – Our6Million.org) members, volunteers & schools for your support in contributing to the success of this tradition, especially during the first years.
