Auschwitz survivor recognizes Sri Lanka genocide

[TamilNet, Thursday, 13 June 2013, 01:29 GMT]
Supporting Tamil activists efforts to raise the awareness of Sri Lanka's genocide of Tamils, a noted holocaust survivor, 79-year old Eva Mozes Kor, told the activists, "Remembering is not enough, we must take all actions possible to stop, and prevent genocides such as in Sri Lanka today." Ms. Kor, who formed a close kinship with the Tamil group on the second workshop day of the "One Million Bones" rally in Washington last Sunday, is a tireless activist for prevention and stopping Genocide, and runs a holocaust museum, doesn't simply project the wrongs of the holocaust but is forward looking on using the past experiences to prevent and stop Genocide, the organizer of the Tamil protest said.

The objective for the second day was to get signatures for a petition to President Obama for an independent international inquiry into the killings of Mu'l'livaaykkaal, according to the attendees to the protest rally. "We had 2 mobile versions of the poster, and broke into teams that started canvassing for signatures. Meeting with Ms Kor was the unexpected highlight of this effort," spokesperson for the Tamil group told TamilNet.

"The One Million Bones Project has for the first time brought together a critical mass of concerned people - mainly thousands of concerned Americans. Our initiative has, I believe, opened the door to them for the first time to critically examine what happened and continues to happen in the Genocide of the Tamils in Sri Lanka," the spokesperson added.



Young Ms Kor is coincidentally the child seen in the right side of the Auschwitz image.
