WE AT THE HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL CENTER (HMC) ARE DEEPLY
SADDENED AT THE UNTIMELY PASSING OF A NOBLE AND RIGHTEOUS
HUMANITARIAN, A TRUE "TZADIK" IN OUR MIDST,

I

OBITUARIES I

DR. JOHN J. MAMES.

HIS DEATH LEAVES AN UNFILLABLE VOID HERE AT THE HMC AND IN
THIS COMMUNITY WHICH HE SERVED WITH UNIQUE LOVE AND
COMMITMENT.
HE DEDICATED MUCH OF HIS LIFE SO THAT THE MEMORIES OF THE
SIX MILLION MARTYRS WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. TO THIS END, DR.
MAMES PIONEERED AND DEVELOPED THE CENTER'S ORAL HISTORY
PROJECT ENABLING SURVIVORS TO RECORD THEIR ANGUISHED STORIES
OF THE HORRORS AND HEROISMS OF THE HOLOCAUST. IT WAS HIS FER-
VENT MISSION TO EDUCATE FUTURE GENERATIONS AND REMIND US
OF MAN'S INHUMANITY TO MAN.
OUT OF OUR DEEP AFFECTION AND ADMIRATION FOR DR. MAMES,
WE AT THE HMC CHOOSE TO PERPETUATE HIS MEMORY BY NAMING
THIS MONUMENTAL ENDEAVOR THE DR. JOHN J. MAMES ORAL
HISTORY PROJECT. WE PRAY THAT HIS DREAM NEVER DIES AND HIS
LEGACY CONTINUES TO ENRICH US ALL.
TO HIS PARTNER, EVA, HIS BELOVED CHILDREN, ROBERT, ANDREA
AND CRAIG AND HIS SISTER, MARY REM, WE EXPRESS OUR HEARTFELT
SYMPATHIES.
MAY YOU FIND COMFORT AMONG THE MOURNERS OF ZION AND
JERUSALEM.
