The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

John Hron

By visiting this page, you have lighted a memorial candle for a young man. His name was John Hron, and he was but 14 when his life was stolen. A school photo of John Hron

You are encouraged to light another.

By doing so, you show your consideration...

... your disgust at the violence that ended with the murder of John Hron, and your repudiation of that violence...

... you dissociate yourself from neo nazi ideology and the violent culture that flourishes among some youth groups...

... and you acknowledge that you want to live in a free, non-violent community where everyone is guaranteed life and freedom...

It is quite simple to light a candle for John Hron; just create a link to this page. But please observe the following request:

No flashy buttons, no blinking lights...
Just these simple words:

Remember John Hron

Please help us light thousands of candles for John!
