Yom Hashoah

Today, in addition to being the National Day of Prayer, is Holocaust Remembrance Day. For survivors, there is no need for a remembrance day- they relive the horror every day. For those who were not there, however, it is a reminder of what can happen when hatred and bigotry are ignored.


This is the International Memorial at Dachau. From a distance, it looks like a mass of tangled barbed wire. As you get closer, you see that it's not barbed wire, and you're struck silent once again.

We've all seen the pictures. We cringe in horror at the retelling of the evil that happened in the name of a master race. We turn away, because it's just too much to take.

We need to take it in... remember... so that history is not doomed to repeat itself.
