27 Jan Holocaust Memorial 2022: Thinking of those who had no choice but to go on without their families
Holocaust Memorial 2022, we see items on television and in the newspapers about the genocide committed against the Jews in World War Two. We Descendants are reading, watching and thinking about our parents and grandparents who had to go on after the war in a world that was not open to the pain caused by what had been done to them.
Surviving is simply going on, there is no way the damage done in the Holocaust can be undone. Our survivors are heroes. We Descendants learned an important lesson from them. Live and show the world who you are, be a proud Jew.
