Thoughts on Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Memorial Day)
Today is no ordinary day. Israel will come to a standstill. The country, for two minutes, will literally stop.
The Jewish people around the world will also pause and remember the six million of their family that are the victims of the worst genocide in human history. Yes, Jews have always been persecuted for thousands of years; however, this stands out. The Holocaust was not something spontaneous that occurred at random. It did not occur in an instant and then stop all of a sudden. It was a long, calculated plan by the Nazis with the main goal to wipe out the entire Jewish nation.
We cannot forget. We shall not forget. We will never, ever forget.
