Quote from Arlie:
"I firmly believe that it is our responsibility to take care of each other on planet Earth - we're all in this together. My interest in Holocaust Education began with my dear father-in-law, who survived the Holocaust. We must not forget. And we must do everything in our power to educate so that it doesn't happen again."
