Yom HaShoah 2014

Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day begins on Sunday night in Israel.

Six Holocaust survivors will be lighting six memorial torches at the Yad Vashem ceremony, in memory of the 6 million Jews killed by the German Nazis and their allies throughout Europe.

Sometimes it appears that the world has learned nothing, as antisemitism has been making a strong comeback, not only in Europe, but even on college campuses in the United States.

  5. As a Christian, I would like to tell you that I love and Pray for Peace for Israel and All Jewish People. Some have stated that Hitler was a Christian. I could just as easily say I Am A Jew, but I am not, just as he was Not a Christian. I don’t know if you believe in what we as some Christians call Demonic a Spirits, but I believe Hitler was a Man Totally Possessed by Demons. God Bless You! And Heal your hurt and Pain caused by this Most Wicked man! I have been to 2 Holocaust Museums and the Sorrow I feel is overwhelming, but I believe it is my responsibility to keep my self informed of such Atrocities that I may share with other. I Pray someday I may have the Extreme Pleasure if going to Israel to visit not only places that are important to me and my beliefs, to experience the Beauty and Culture of some of the Most Wonderful People in the World!

    THIS IS THE MOST DIABOLICAL AND HIDEOUS CRIME AGAINST A GOD FEARING AND CHOSEN PEOPLE. MANKIND MUST NEVER ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN AGAIN……NEVER FORGET, BECAUSE SOMETIMES HISTORY TENDS TO REPEAT ITSELF. WE MUST ESTABLISH CENTRES OF EDUCATION TO TEACH OUR CHILDREN THE VIRTUES OF PEACE LOVE AND HUMILITY. BECAUSE WE ARE HUMAN WE MUST PROTECT EACH OTHER AND INCREASE OUR AWARENESS TO THE PLIGHT OF OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS…WHERE EVER THEY MAY BE IN THE WORLD. AS THE JEWS SAY…IF YOU SAVE A LIFE , YOU SAVE A NATION!!!! we MUST SAVE EVERY LIFE, CAUSE EVERY LIFE HAS POTENTIAL TO BEAR FRUIT IN THIS WORLD. EVERY LIFE COUNTS. EVERY LIFE BELONGS TO GOD…….GOD PROTECT HUMANITY , AND KEEP OUR SOULS AND MIND AWAY FROM SATAN….. AMEN !!!!! WE MUST CONTINUE TO SOW SEEDS OF UNDERSTANDING; LOVE; AND BE ALWAYS AWAY ABOUT THE WORLD AROUND US AND THE PLIGHT OF ITS PEOPLES . MOST OF ALL , PRAY AND KEEP FOCUSED ON GOD. THE DOVE OF PEACE MUST BURN A FLAME OF REMEMBRANCE
