Focus on faces in Holocaust memorial

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Regarding the Niskayuna Holocaust Memorial. I’m not Jewish. I don’t live in Niskayuna. I seldom travel Route 7. I’ve only been to the Holy Redeemer Cemetery a couple of times.But I, too, have strong feelings regarding this issue. My father was a World War II soldier and among those who liberated the Buchenwald concentration camp. He witnessed all these objects of horror you wish to display. But when he spoke of being there, he spoke of the faces.Let’s memorialize the people, those lost and those saved. It should be a place where you can honor those who had their lives taken, fought for their lives and fought for the lives of others. I know my father would have visited such a memorial, but he would never have gone to the one which is planned.Creators, please listen to the people both past and present.Marilyn ChewCharltonMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homeslast_img
