Holocaust Remembrance Day

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. It's one of those times when, I believe, nothing more needs to be said.

I read the post below this morning, and it moved me to tears. It wasn't the tales of horror, but rather what it said about humanity.

I'll also be reflecting a bit more than usual today, and aiming for a touch more silence.

Knowing Jack: Holocaust Remembrance Day 2012


Debbie said...

WOW ... so now that you made me cry ... Jack, what a beautiful human being. A few years ago I read "Night" by Elie Wiesel. I don't know how anyone could survive such an unspeakable hell and still have human emotions - kindness, love, hope. AMAZING. My little worries are nothing ... thanks for the link. I needed to read this today.

Thank you for sharing Jack's story! In addition to what happened to him during the war, I found the story of he came to America after the war just as fascinating. I shared the story with my FB friends, I hope more people are encouraged to read it. Jack's life will live on in all the people like us who share.
Take care,
Lisa Weinstein

Thank you Debbie and Lisa for reading. I think it's important to share these stories... sadly, it's too easy to forget. I know that I for one, do not want to forget.
