Join Our Special Project During July & August 2018
The first #GETPeaceProject film The Story of Lina Amato is about to be screened for FREE TO THE PUBLIC in four cities in South Africa.
The film is about one of the most important lessons that humanity can ever learn. The Story of Lina Amato is a true story told by a Holocaust survivor - Lina Kantor (Amato) - who lives in Cape Town. It is her account of how a Muslim man and two Christian school teachers saved her and 41 other Jews during WWII from being deported by the Nazis to their deaths in Auschwitz.
Up to 6 million Jews are believed to have been murdered during the Holocaust. Read more here...
The following quotes come to mind:
Let it never be said by future generations that indifference, cynicism or selfishness made us fail to live up to the ideals of humanism which the Nobel Peace Prize encapsulates. Let the strivings of us all, prove Martin Luther King Jr. to have been correct, when he said that humanity can no longer be tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war.
- Nelson Mandela
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.
- Martin Luther King, Jr
We cannot understand [Fascism], but we can and must understand from where it springs, and we must be on our guard...because what happened can happen again...For this reason, it is everyone's duty to reflect on what happened.
- Primo Levi
