Lumbee Tribe of N.C. honors the memory of the six million Jewish victims and survivors
Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. The Lumbee Tribe of N.C. honors the memory of the six million Jewish victims and the legacy of the survivors. Families and organizations across the globe take time to remember this genocide of millions. Lumbee Tribal member Jessie Oxendine was a soldier in the 82nd Airborne Division when he and his regiment played a key role in the liberation of the Jewish prisoners at the Wobbelin, Germany Nazi concentration camp. He was the youngest of 4 brothers who served. We are thankful for the willingness of our Lumbee Veterans who fight for freedom.
