Holocaust Memorial Day (Yom HaShoah)

Let us never forget.

Holocaust Memorial day.


Israel and others around the world remember the Holocaust - Yom Hashoah

"A strong man came to power in Germany whose ideas were that Germany has to create a national community, which would include only the Aryan race, which he considered superior, and all the people who did not belong to the Aryan race could be eliminated. With planning and propaganda, he was able to convince most of the German people to go along with him, insensitive to what happened to the Jews who had basically been their former neighbors. And he managed to build concentration camps and killing centers and finally gas chambers to annihilate six million Jews and at the same time also millions of others, murdered in a systematic, government-sponsored way"
-Margit Meissner, Holocaust Survivor-

  1. Blessings to you as we all remember! We had a nice ceremony in our town here which has always had a large Jewish population - immigrants from the early 20th century who were largely chicken farmers but second generation grew to become doctors, lawyers, and businessmen, after their chicken farmer parents put our hometown on the world map as the Egg Capital of the World into the 1950's - before government regulated them all out of business! I live in Vineland, NJ.

    Anyway - glad sparrows blessed you - hope your mom has some outside her window to bring her joy!
