Yom Hashoah


“If we wish to live and to bequeath life to our offspring, if we believe that we are to pave the way to the future, then we must first of all not forget.”

Prof. Ben Zion Dinur, Yad Vashem, 1956

A few links to follow to learn about this day as well as reflect on it. In addtion to Holocaust Remembrance Day, which began at sundown last night, it is also 80 years since the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. I have a well-worn book about the Uprising that I’ve kept since childhood.

One thought on “Yom Hashoah

  1. remember the faith they saved inside them, of the Great G-D, the spirit that kept many sane in a very insane time, and years later, the revelations since, the lessons of the times, and how the righteous dead never die, even if those who don’t believe think otherwise, As Jesus has taught the world, the Gospels proved to be true, the flow of the Spirit in continuous, and that Spirit demands, we give no space to hatred, or as Jesus says, his words the living words, its’ not easy to forgive, but with Eternal Help, it’s very possible, as He said to Herod, all those years ago, you are only there because of my Eternal Father, his Pain was a great offering to mankind, in short, he didn’t have to die, he chose to, knowing His Eternal Father would always be there, in short, keep that space free for the divine use, and continue to apply yourself to the Gospels, they reveal so much, amen.
