Yom Hashoah

Today we remember Yom Hashoah or better known as Holocaust Memorial Day. Yesterday, I spoke to the kids more about the horrible events that happened during War World II.

In 1959 the Israel Knesset passed a law creating Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, which is observed each year on the 27th day of the month of Nissan, according to the Jewish calendar. This date coincides with the beginning of the revolt against the Nazis by Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto in 1943.
We must never forget the horrific events that happened during the Holocaust. We must remember to prevent such a catastrophe from happening again.

6 million Jews died. Thousands of Non-Jewish also perished during this time. It didn't matter what type of Jew you were rich or poor. Whether you were an observant religious Jew or secular. Age didn't matter over 1,500 million children perished in the death camps.

 I learned something that I didn't know while looking into the Holocaust to teach the kids. Did you know that the Nazi went back three generation to find out if you had any Jewish ancestry.

My little girl might of perished in the concentration camp if we lived in Europe during that time. Not because she is Jewish, because she is a gentile who is handicapped.



 WE MUST NEVER FORGET!

 Out of the ashes of the Holocaust the State of Israel was born in 1948. After two thousand years the Jewish people had their own land again. Many who came to Eretz (land) of Israel were survivors of the Holocaust.

Pray for the shalom (peace) of Jerusalem. Come quickly Yeshua.
