“It is obvious that the war which Hitler and his accomplices waged was a war not only against Jewish men, women, and children, but also against Jewish religion, Jewish culture, Jewish tradition, therefore Jewish memory.”
― Elie Wiesel, Night

On 27 January each year, we remember those who suffered, who were murdered on the most brutal manners, we remember those who became ashes, we remember those who died just because they were Jews.

It is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, day of tears, day of remembrance, and day of tragedy which happened while many were watching.


On the other hand, now, when there is Israel there is no fear that someone can do that horrific historical crime again to Jews.

We remember all those non-Jews who suffered with Jews and who were murdered just because they wanted to be on the side of justice, to save lives of innocent.

We remember those who supported horrendous crimes, sitting and doing nothing.

We remember kids who were yearning searching for their parents.

We remember that Nazi regime had no mercy and has killed many children without any regret.

We remember those who try to run away but were shot.

We remember those who lost tribe of their family and nowadays they are searching for their cousins, because many changed surnames and names.

We remember trains full of people who were going straight to death.

We remember Crystal night, Nazi propaganda and all lies who are invented only for one reason - to hate Jews.

Those who hate Jews, Israel, anti-Semites should remember- Jews survived, now they defend their country and never again none will have right to prosecute them.

We remember and by remembering, looking at Yad Vashem we ask, why?

What may happen that someone become so evil?

What happened to those who did nothing?

What happened to those who were looking how people are dying just because of fake propaganda, just because of jealousy and just because they were Jews?

We remember those who were risking their lives to save Jews and help them on any way, they should not ever be forgotten.

When I have visited Yad Vashem for the first time I stayed speechless, no words, I had feeling that my blood is frozen and tears were just running down my face.

We remember….and the fact of the matter is whatever bloody Nazi regime tried to destroy human lives, Jews survived, and now they are stronger than ever because kids of anchors are alive and Israel lives!
