Holocaust Rememberence Day

Today we remember Yom Hashoah or better known as Holocaust Memorial Day.
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. The Holocaust was between the years of 1933-1945.

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. Age didn't matter over 1,500 million children perished in the death camps. The Nazis also targeted people with disabilities, political dissidents, gypsies, and homosexuals.
May we never forget! Never Again! 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.

 “I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” — Elie Wiesel
“I had to help them. There was no choice.” — Oskar Schindler
Pray for the shalom (peace) of Jerusalem. Come quickly Yeshua.
