The 12th April, 2018 - Holocaust Memorial Day (Yom HaShoah) … a sad and solemn day in Israel, when all Jewish people where ever they at the sound of the siren, stop and stand to observe a two minute silence to remember those who died in the Holocaust … And, then on the 18th May, 2018 is also a Memorial Day (Yom HaZicharon) in Israel as the day was set apart to remember the soldiers who died in the "War of Liberation" and who are buried on Mount Herzl and elsewhere throughout the State. The Ministry of Defence sends out personal messages of condolence to all families who have lost men and women in the country’s struggle to maintain its freedom. Thousands make the pilgrimage and stand before Theo Herzl’s grave on a high plateau, beautifully situated and overlooking the City of
Why must we NEVER forget the Holocaust? The Hebrew word for the Holocaust in Hebrew is "Shoah" meaning "Catastrophe"…The Holocaust was the systematic annihilation of six million Jews during the Nazi genocide - in 1933 nine million Jews lived in the 21 countries of
The Holocaust should never be forgotten as it must remind us of what we are all capable of if we do not act with love and compassion… Someone other than Hitler had to usher Jews into the gas chambers… Someone before that person took away their belongings and gave them to another person to rifle through… Someone else forced them onto the trains to
If we ignore the lessons of history, we are destined to repeat it … One quote of Hitler actually told us of his plans… "When I came to power, I did not want the concentration camps to become old age pensioner’s homes, but instruments of terror." (Adolph Hitler)
It can happen again… In the future, there could be a Christian Holocaust especially in countries where Muslims are ruling… Muslims allegedly consider Christians as infidels, and enemies of Islam. From, that assumption, extreme Islamists seize in eliminating Christians just as the Nazis used to eliminate Jews because the Nazis felt threatened by Jews so Muslims feel threatened by Christians. Many Muslims now seem to think that they need to kill Jews and Christians to safeguard their alleged threatened religious heritage…
Professional and amateur artists recorded what they saw and experienced during the reign of the Third Reich. They went beyond simple protest against the hardships, misery and inhumanity to leave a vivid account of their sufferings. The record left behind in the ghettos of those in death camps, and displaced persons create snapshots of life and death under Hitler. Drawings and paintings speak eloquently of man's inhumanity and cruelty. The Nazis labelled this art "horror propaganda," Holocaust writer Lawrence Langer calls it the "horror truth."
Some 1.5 million innocent children were murdered during the Holocaust… Nazi persecution, arrests, and deportations were directed against all members of the targeted families without concern for age. Plucked from their homes and stripped of their childhood... many children had witnessed the murder of parents, siblings, and relatives.
Many faced starvation, illness and brutal labour, until all of them were consigned to the gas chambers. They lived and died during the dark years of the Holocaust and were victims of the Nazi nightmare...!

"God? How good You are, how kind and if one had to count the number of goodness’s and kindness’s You have done, one would never finish!
God? It is You who command. It is You who are justice, it is You who reward the good and punish evil!
God? It is thanks to You that I had a beautiful life before, that I was spoiled, that I had lovely things that others do not have!
God? After that, I ask You one more thing only; Make my parents come back, my poor parents, protect them (even more than You protect me) so that I can see them again as soon as possible. Make them come back!
Ah, I had such a good mother and such a good father. I have such faith in You and I thank You in advance!"
One of the most famous accounts of the Holocaust is told by a teenage Jewish girl who from1942 to 1944, with her family, hid from the Gestapo in a tiny attic in
It's a wonder I haven't abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart. It's utterly impossible for me to build my life on a foundation of chaos, suffering and death. I see the world being slowly transformed into a wilderness, I hear the approaching thunder that, one day, will destroy us too, and I feel the suffering of millions. And yet, when I look up at the sky, I somehow feel that everything will change for the better that this cruelty too shall end, that peace and tranquillity will return once more. In the meantime, I must hold on to my ideals. Perhaps the day will come when I'll be able to realize them!" The Diary of a young girl by Anne Franke
"I wanted to go to school not so much to learn, but to eat the soup and not be frozen!" Chaim Cale, Age 13.
"Everyone was going in the same direction… rushing toward the same goal, the dirtiest, ugliest quarter of the city, a place with no sewers and paved with cobblestones…The Ghetto" Irena Aronowicz age 15 Spring 1940.
"Beautiful, sunny day today... When the sun shines, my mood is lighter. How sad life is. When we look at the fence separating us from the rest of the world, our souls, like birds in a cage, yearn to be free. Longing, breaks my heart, visions of the past come to me. Will I ever live in better times?" Anonymous girl diarist
These poems and children's drawings were hidden at Terezin Concentration Camp inside mattresses and stuffed in cracks between the walls of houses. They were recovered after the war. Many of these other poems and drawings are collected in a book which was published by the
"I never saw another butterfly… the last, the very last, so richly, brightly, dazzling tallow. Perhaps if the sun’s tears sing against a white stone… such a yellow is carried lightly ‘way up high.’ It went away I’m sure because it wished to kiss the world goodbye. For seven weeks I’ve lived in here, penned up inside this ghetto, but I have found my people here. The dandelions call to me, and the white chestnut candles in the court. Only I never saw another butterfly! That butterfly was the last one… butterflies don’t live here in the ghetto." Pavel Friedman, June 1942
"Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee. Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily. For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth." Psalm 102: 1- 5
Sadly, the Holocaust is also a Christian issue - while Christianity on the whole was not perpetrators of the Holocaust… The Holocaust occurred in the most Christian part of the world… It occurred in the very eyes and heart of Christian Europe. Furthermore, while the hundreds of thousands of Nazis and their collaborators carried out the Holocaust, every Nazi and their collaborators (except their Muslim collaborators), had been baptized a Christian. Every Nazi had Christian parents, attended
"Purimfest 1946" - The Purim Link between Nazi
Moments before Streicher was hanged in the early hours of
Amazingly, Streicher saw the historic link between the Nazi genocide and the attempted genocide of Haman, who, like the Nazis, also intended to wipe out every Jew; man, woman and child. But there is an even deeper irony, which Streicher was certainly not aware of. The Book of Esther lists the names of Haman’s ten sons and according to the Jewish writings (Halachah), three of the letters in these names are written in smaller font than the rest of the text - a tav, a shin and a zayin - and one letter is written in larger font; a vav. What do these unusually sized letters signify? For generations many different explanations have been offered. In the 20th century, however, another amazing meaning was discovered. The large vav is numerically 6, corresponding to the sixth millennium; the small tav, shin and zayin are numerically 707; together, these numbers refers to the 707th year of the sixth millennium - in other words, the Jewish year 5707, which corresponds to 1946, the year in which these ten high-ranking Nazis were hanged. Thus, the unusually sized letters - vav, tav, shin and zayin - found in the names of Haman’s ten sons allude to the year of the execution of these ten Nazi war criminals. What is further fascinating is that they were sentenced on the 1st of October, in the days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur of 1946, and hanged on the 16th of October, which that year came out on Hoshana Rabbah, which, according to the Jewish writings (Zohar), is the day that judgment of the world is finalized.
Since the Old Testament is God’s wisdom for all times, there are often things which cannot be properly understood until generations later. The differences in the font size of the letters in the list of Haman’s ten sons were not completely understood in previous generations. There were other explanations for it, but only in October 1946 did the full meaning of it become clear as ten Nazis were hanged in the Jewish year 5707; tav – shin – zayin!

In the 1920’s, the very suggestion that Palestinian Arabs constituted a separate ethnic nationality was enough to send those same Arabs out into the streets to murder and plunder violently in outrage. If they themselves insisted they were simply Syrians who had migrated to the
On page 312 of "The Arab Awakening," Antonius writes; "The year 1920 has an evil name in Arab annals: it is referred to as the Year of the Catastrophe (Am al-Nakba). It saw the first armed risings that occurred in protest against the post-War settlement imposed by the Allies on the Arab countries. In that year, serious outbreaks took place in
Yes, 1920, not 1948! That’s right, 1920 ~ when there was still NO Zionist state; NO Jewish sovereignty; NO "settlements" in "so called occupied territories" as there was NO "West Bank" it was simply called Judea and Samaria; NO Israeli Defence Forces; NO Israeli missiles and choppers targeting terror leaders and, NO Jewish control over Jerusalem (which had a Jewish demographic majority going back at least to 1850).

The clearest prophecy regarding the re-gathering is to be found in Ezekiel 36 and 37. Remember, this prophecy was written about 2,500 years ago. God said through the prophet: "I scattered them among the heathen (Gentile nations) and they were dispersed through the countries." (Ezekiel 36: 19) (It was God who scattered them!) The final dispersion took place in AD 70 when the Roman general Titus savagely conquered
