“Ms. Him,

The Wassmuth Center for Human Rights in Boise is the builder and home of the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial .  The Memorial is a world-class education park visited by over 120,000 annually.... 


The Center developed an international outreach program in which we distribute bicycles and backpacks to village school children in Cambodia.  Last week we distributed 200 bicycles in remote schools three hours out of Battambang. The people of Cambodia are near and dear to our work, adding your story in the Memorial will enable us to bring a powerful Cambodian voice to Boise.”

Dan Prinzing, Executive Director of the Wassmuth Center

Holocaust Memorial Day 2017 UK Commemorative Ceremony

Chanrithy Him-0007.jpg

Only January 27, 2017, my life story was highlighted with the Holocaust survivor and Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel's at the Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) in London.


HMD is the day for everyone to remember the millions of people killed in the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and the subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur.  January marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp.


The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2017 is: How can life go on? The aftermath of the Holocaust and of subsequent genocides continues to raise challenging questions for individuals, communities and nations. HMD 2017 asked everyone to think about what happens after genocide and of our own responsibilities in the wake of such a crime.
