Adam Milstein was born in Isreal. He is a Jewish man who moved to the United States in the early 1980’s to make a better life for himself and his family. He graduated from USC in 1983 and then found his calling with the real estate firm Hager Pacific Properties. Over the next few years, he was able to work his way up and become a managing partner at the company. His career is only part of his life. Adam Milstein makes sure to give back to the community at large. In particular, he gives his time and effort to Israeli-American children so that they will never forget the sacrifices of those who came before them. In a recent article for the Jewish News Syndicate, Adam Milstein takes an up close and personal look at the Holocaust.
Adam Milstein says that the Holocaust is one of the most important events in human history and we must remember the horror of what went on during World War II. He took a trip through six countries including Germany and Poland to see what it was like. The images that Adam Milstein saw were unforgettable. In particular, the ovens of Auschwitz were particularly horrifying for him to see.
He knows that a system like this took many years to build. It was difficult for him to imagine the systemic use of racism and intolerance that the Germans had for the Jews back then. More than two million Jews perished at Auschwitz and anti-semitism still occurs today. Back then many non-Jewish people believed that the genocide of the Jewish people was an acceptable solution, especially in Nazi-held Germany. Even today the tide of anti-semitism still exists across Europe and in the United States as well. It is something to always keep an eye on.
Adam Milstein took this trip to always remember the past and pass the history of what happened at Auschwitz to future generations. This is one way he is making a significant impact on Jewish history. If we do not learn from our mistakes of the past we are doomed to repeat them.
