Memorial should be welcomed in Nisky

first_imgRe April 3 letter, “Holocaust memorial should be welcomed”: I agree wholeheartedly with Claudia Fennicks.Regardless of fear mongering, lower property values, vandalism and so on, let’s not forget why the Holocaust memorial is being built —to remember the Holocaust and its millions of victims. Presently, a wave of anti-Semitism throughout our nation and college campuses grows unabated  — more reason why this Holocaust memorial should be built on its planned site.We have our 9/11 memorials, memorials to many other groups, people and causes. No longer shall we give into deniers, revisionists and haters. Sheila and Bob DiSarro, I wouldn’t mind this memorial by my house — I’d be honored. Further, for this memorial to be built on lands owned by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany is a huge step in the right direction. We know that to some degree, some leaders in the church looked the other way and were in many ways complicit in sending Jews to the ovens. The Holocaust is a reminder that will never leave the rest of us either — lest we forget.Gerald PlanteSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcySchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Motorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashSchenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crash Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img
