Israel's "Past and Future in Our Hands" stamp

The United Nations General Assembly issued Resolution 30/7 on November 1, 2005 designating January 27 as the International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

To highlight the occasion, Israel released the "Past and Future in Our Hands" stamp from a photo by Karen Gillerman-Harel that won the "My Flag" photo contest during Israel's 60th anniversary celebration.

Included in the stamp sheet is Holocaust Survivor and Nobel Peace Prize winner Professor Eli Wiesel's quote, "Remember the past for the sake of the future and may the past of the old not become the future of the young."
