Today (from sundown yesterday to sundown today) is Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day in Israel. I’ve been honored and humbled in my lifetime to meet four holocaust survivors and discuss with them their experiences. Two of these moments were shared with my oldest daughter. These are moments that she will not be able to experience by the time she is my age .
May we always remember.
In humility we remember the tragic and unthinkable human capacity for evil.
In hope we remember the strength of life and goodness to survive.
In honor we remember those who suffered such great pain and loss.
In remembering may we strengthen the commitment to always stand against such suffering and persecution.
