During the Holocaust more than 6 million Jewish victims were murdered, with over 60 million civilians killed in total throughout World War II.
This social tool attempts to help visualise this grand loss of life by showing a real life example of the enormity of the number six million via participants social networks. We aim to personalise what this number looks like.
Every one of those victims had a name, a story and their life stolen from them simply because they were Jewish.
6millionfriends.com mission is to spread awareness to help our generation, and generations to come, to never forget the attempted genocide of the Jewish people.
