Genocide cannot occur without the active participation or the passive enabling of the general population. This conclusion is troubling because if ordinary people are capable of the evil that led to the Holocaust, then other genocides can happen today. This film explores the lessons of personal choice and empathy.
We approach this important project mindful of the prophetic words of famed Nazi hunter and Holocaust survivor Simon Wiesenthal: "We must be ever wary of those who do not take responsibility for their actions. And we ourselves must be extra vigilant that we do not delegate our thinking to others, particularly in this day of accelerated technological power, heightened state surveillance, fear of "the other" and global corporate reach."
"Crickets Would Sing" offers an unprecedented opportunity for prospective donors to participate in a unique educational initiative that holds the potential to transform how young people the world over learn about the Holocaust and contemporary genocide.
