Words are arguably the most powerful tools in the world. Armies follow the order of their government leaders, if they don’t receive word, they don’t take action. Words influence us and our actions, they can make a difference, both for good and evil, and that’s why the theme for this year’s Holocaust Memorial day is “The Power of Words”.

‘I want to go on living even after my death! And that’s why I am so grateful to God for having given me this gift, which I can use to develop myself and to express all that’s in me. When I write I can shake off all my cares; my sorrow disappears; my spirits are revived.’ – Anne Frank, written in her diary, 5 April 1944
