RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - Seventy years ago American troops stormed concentration camps in Europe, putting an end to a genocide that left 6 million Jews and 6 million others dead.
Sunday, the community of Russellville wanted to remember and honor the lives lost in the Holocaust. This current generation is likely the last to hear first-hand the horrors of the Holocaust.
With the last Holocaust survivors passing away, the ticking clock is making education and remembrance that much more important.
A 92-year-old War Veteran, Beryl Wolfson, was one of the first men to liberate Jews from the Dakau concentration camp in 1945. And what he saw, he vowed to bring back and bring up, along with more than 40 other people in Russellville.
"I hope that they will learn. I hope they will learn to stand up for what is right," said
