The WJC’s campaign is simple: asking participants worldwide to photograph themselves with a sign that reads “We Remember,” in their own language, and to upload their image onto social media using the hashtag #WeRemember.

The response has been overwhelming with more than 200,000 people taking part so far, either individually or in group pictures, from every continent and in dozens of languages – with many more to come ahead of tomorrow’s Holocaust Memorial Day. And this week the Auschwitz museum projected the campaign’s images on the grounds of the infamous camp.

WJC chief Robert Singer said: “Anti-Semitism is more prevalent today than any time since 1945. That’s why we all must declare, together, that we remember.”
