The Netherlands Holocaust Names Memorial

"Oranje Boven" means "orange above."  Orange was the color of the Dutch royal family. The Dutch took heart from this little saying during World War II.

Here is a really nice thing that people can do to commemorate victims of the Holocaust in the Netherlands on this, the 70th year of the anniversary of the liberation of Europe.

For every Holocaust survivor that I meet, I wonder about the ones that I can’t meet, that no one can ever meet again – their family members and friends who were lost.  The Netherlands Holocaust Names Memorial wants to list every person lost in the Holocaust so that they’ll never be forgotten.  You can “adopt” the name of a Holocaust victim here on the website below.  If you don’t personally know of someone who died in the Shoah, the memorial website can select one for you.  Best of all, the site has an English version, so its navigation is no problem.

Help the world remember them here:
