The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

Hilary Ostrov

Despite all appearances to the contrary, Hilary Ostrov is old enough to be a grandmother. She lives, quite happily, with her cat, in a suburb of Vancouver, British Columbia.

A graduate of the University of Western Ontario, more years ago than she cares to remember, Ms. Ostrov, a former social services administrator, now enjoys a career as a computer educator/consultant. She is also an occasionally published (but often not) writer.

Although born in the United Kingdom, Ms. Ostrov is proudly Canadian - and equally proud of her Jewish roots. Her life has always been informed by a strong appreciation for the privileges and responsibilities of living in a democratic society - and by an acute awareness of the reality of the Holocaust and its anti-semitic antecedents.

As to why Ms. Ostrov has become involved with Nizkor:

She believes that the voices of the Shoah Deniers cannot be silenced - nor should they be. But, while their words fall on many incredulous ears, time has taken its toll on humanity's conscious knowledge of the Holocaust. There is a chasm - into which the deniers, masquerading as self-proclaimed voices of reason, scholarship and doubt, plant their seemingly endless supply of seeds of vitriolic malice. The myths which the deniers propagate must be countered by facts.
