"We must all be everlasting witnesses to the past."
American astronaut Jessica Meir is on a 7 month mission aboard the International Space Station. From space, Jessica has sent a special message to ensure that the events and meaning of the Holocaust are never forgotten and stay relevant to our global society.
Before traveling to space, Jessica brought a replica of a drawing on a postcard from Yad Vashem's Art Collection.
The card was sent in 1944 by Felix Kassowitz to his son. Felix was a slave laborer with the Hungarian Labor Service on the Russian front.
Listen as Jessica describes why the moving message Felix wrote on this card in 1944 has special meaning for her, as a female astronaut, today as well.
