Holocaust Remembrance Day

Opdat wij niet, nee nooit vergeten

Today is Yom HaZikaron laShoah ve-laG’vurah (Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day), 
which is also known as Yom HaShoah or Holocaust Remembrance Day.

"Hear my prayer, Lord; let my cry for help come to You....  
In my distress I groan aloud and am reduced to skin and bones."  
(Psalm 102:1, 5)

The arrival of Hungarian Jews in Auschwitz in the summer of 1944.  
This year marks the tragic 70th anniversary of the destruction of Hungary's
Jewish community.

A Holocaust survivor views a pile of bodies stacked in a shed in the
Ohrdruf concentration camp in Germany.  Approximately two thirds of
Europe's nine million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust.

In the Auschwitz concentration camp complex, incoming prisoners who
were selected to work were tattooed with a serial number.  
Those who were sent directly to the gas chambers were not issued serial numbers
and therefore, not tattooed.

Opdat wij niet, nee nooit vergeten
