6 Million People

6 Million People is a project I support whole-heartedly.

The United Nations General Assembly reaffirms that 'the Holocaust, which resulted in the murder of one third of the Jewish people along with countless members of other minorities, will forever be a warning to all people of the dangers of hatred, bigotry, racism and prejudice."

Please help us remember the holocaust dutifully and respectfully by adding your photos-- of you, your loved ones and others-- to our pool. Add as many photos as you want, but please submit no more than 1 picture of any person, so that in the end we will have close to 6 million pictures of people, with a different person the subject of each picture. It's going to take a long time to add up to 6 million pictures—that's 200,000 Flickr pages with 30 images each—but our goal is 6 years or less. When we complete the project, it will be a memorial to those who died, and will provide us a with a way to visualize all those people. Thank you for helping and supporting us in our goal.

Last night I uploaded portraits of 98 people. It got me a spot on their blog but the real reason I point this out is that I would like to challenge everyone of you. Post more people than me. Please. As of putting up this post there are pictures of 60,217 photos
