International Holocaust Remembrance Day was observed Wednesday. It’s a day every year the world acknowledges the horrors of the Holocaust during World War II.

During the pandemic, education of the Holocaust has shifted to the internet.

Holocaust survivors in Southwest Florida joined together for a virtual event hosted by Holocaust Museum & Cohen Education Center in North Naples to never forget what happened to them and millions of others — both the living and the dead.

“We have a tendency to look back and forget what was done before,” survivor Rob Nossen said. “We have short memories. Let’s put it that way.”
