Who's Wearing I Remember

- "It’s no secret that I am an accessories lover, and my favorite pieces are the ones that have meaning attached to them. This is the @irememberbracelet. The intricate railroad track design is modeled after those that led so many to their deaths at Auschwitz, including my children’s great great grandparents. Their blessed memory is part of our family’s legacy that we hope to forever preserve.
- The “I Remember Against Genocide Bracelet” not only represents genocide against the Jews, which we have faced throughout the centuries, but it symbolizes human suffering and atrocities against all people, past and present. It serves as both a token of love and remembrance of those lost, and also as a reminder to stand up against hate that can start seemingly small, but ultimately lead to unfathomable tragedy.
- The hope of this bracelet is that it reminds the wearer and those around him or her that we have an obligation to use our voices for those who no longer have one. May we live compassionately, with our eyes opened and seek justice for those whose cries have been silenced!
- A portion of your purchase of the “I Remember” bracelet will go to the “Stronger Than Hate” initiative of the USC Shoah Foundation to help educate about the tyrannical history of genocide, end hate toward any ethnic, racial or religious group or gender inequality, and prevent future crimes against humanity. Link to shop in stories."

- "The most beautiful bracelet from @irememberbracelet has arrived! This bracelet represents train tracks similar to those at Auschwitz and other Nazi concentration camps. The designer, Bonnie Glogover, is the daughter of an Auschwitz survivor. Her father, Stanley, miraculously survived medical experiments performed on him by notorious Nazi doctor Josef Mengele’s cohorts. This ‘I REMEMBER AGAINST GENOCIDE’ bracelet is dedicated to all genocide victims. It’s meant to invoke meaningful dialogue between the wearer and those who look upon it. My Poppy’s signature and his Auschwitz prisoner #143499 are both engraved on this bracelet. I will always wear it and continue to share his story ❤"

- "The I REMEMBER bracelet brings my late husband, Stanley, closer to my heart . It also helps me remember All the victims of genocide who are never to be forgotten."
- My bracelet honors my SABA’S continuing life and legacy. He is Dr. Mordecai Paldiel, a leading scholar on the rescue of Jews during the Holocaust. As a child, he and his family moved to various parts of occupied France. In September 1943, with the help of the Catholic cleric Simon Gallay, his parents, five siblings and him fled to Switzerland, where they stayed until the war’s end, then moved to the USA, and settled in Brooklyn. He would go onto earn an MA and PhD in Holocaust Studies, at Temple University. My Saba, Dr. Mordecai Paldiel was the director of Yad Vashem’s Department of the Righteous in Jerusalem from 1984 until his retirement in 2007. Thousands of Righteous Among the Nations were recognized during my Saba’s tenure at Yad Vashem including the priest who saved his families life. "

- "To honor my Grandfather who fought in WWII and was a POW. I believe it is important to keep the conversation alive in regards to holocaust and genocide so that it's not forgotten and history therefore does not repeat itself. By wearing a beautiful and intricate bracelet such as this one, the conversation is sparked in a natural manner and the deeper meaning then presented."

- "My I REMEMBER bracelet - A reminder that we must never forget the atrocities of the Holocaust. I purchased this bracelet as a tribute to my Uncle Abe, a brilliant, loving man and a survivor of Auschwitz. His family perished (all except a brother) but their memory lives on. We must continue to tell the stories for our loved ones. I wear this bracelet proudly, and lovingly remember the sacrifice of so many souls. "

- "I proudly wear my I REMEMBER bracelet in honor of my beloved mother and grandmother who survived Bergen Belsen and my great aunt who survived both Theresienstadt and its liquidation to Auschwitz. I wear it in loving memory of the grandfather I never knew, who, not as fortunate as his sister-in-law, was murdered upon his arrival at Auschwitz. I wear it to honor the memory of the six million innocents who perished mercilessly at the hands of the Nazis. I wear it because Anti-Semitism is at an all-time high, and if we're not vigilant, history will repeat itself. Why do I remember? Because for the good of humanity, forgetting is not an option."

- "My father got me the I REMEMBER bracelet as a gift for my college graduation. One of the focal points of my college experience was studying the history of the Holocaust in Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic. With 27 other students and 2 professors, I visited these countries for 3 weeks and witnessed several concentration and death camps. While it was a difficult experience, I am grateful that I can continue to share what I learned with others. This bracelet represents my mission to never forget! Thank you! "

Every time I glance down at my wrist, I take a moment to remember to commemorate the memories of so many innocent souls- I reflect on the meaning behind this message so I never forget. I am in total awareness of the senseless pain and anguish too many have to endure. "

- “I wear the I REMEMBER bracelet with pride. It was passed down from my grandma Marilyn Epstein who previously wore it. This bracelet means so much to me because of the history it signifies, my grandma and our stand against genocide.“
- "The I REMEMBER bracelet is very important to me. It is very meaningful. I am wearing my bracelet to honor my father who during WWII, under the German guns, had to dig his own grave to be executed. Because the allied forces started bombing the area, the Germans left in a hurry, running for their life, and left my father. My father’s life was never the same again. I am wearing my bracelet to honor Stanley Glogover and all the people whose lives were changed forever due to the Holocaust! I am wearing my bracelet to honor every soul that lost their life in WWII under the Germans rule. I am wearing my bracelet to keep the conversation going and talk to young people, our children, and grandchildren to never forget!"

- “Our mother, Luba Felman, survived the holocaust in her late teen years. The bracelet is a reminder of how she survived and how she managed, as a single parent, to raise twin daughters in the United States. The bracelet rail tracks design reminds us that her parents took the train to a death camp and she and her sister were allowed to live, hiding from the Germans. She survived all of that and still provided a good home for us. The words “I Remember” are our memories of her struggles and her strengths throughout the years. She was a devoted mother and a strong-willed independent woman that we can remember with pride."

- “I bought two beautiful I REMEMBER bracelets for my Mom and Aunt to remember my grandmother Luba Felman. The train tracks of the bracelet symbolize the survivor that she was and all that she lost. I wanted my Mom and Aunt to have this bracelet to remember their Mom and the special relationship they had. Her signature is engraved on the inside of the bracelet. Now they always have a piece of my grandmother with them. They have done so much for me and I wanted to do something special for them. Our family has been through a lot and survived. “
