Today is January 27th — Holocaust Memorial Day

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — furtherglory @ 3:12 pm

You can read about Holocaust Memorial Day in this news article:

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2586155/holocaust-memorial-day-2018-liberation-auschwitz-date/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote:

The focus of Holocaust Memorial Day is to remember the atrocities of the Second World War, and ensure that mankind doesn’t repeat the horrific mistakes of its past.

HMB is a UK remembrance day, which we have followed since 2001. The event is also in tribute to those who died in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur – in similarly horrific genocides.

The BBC broadcast a special Holocaust edition of the Antiques Roadshow earlier this month, broadcasting powerful survivor stories.

Each year there is a theme, with a strong focus on remembrance and learning from the past. This year’s theme is ‘How Can Life Go On?’

As the event’s organisers explain: “It’s a time for everyone to pause to remember the millions of people who have been murdered or whose lives have been changed beyond recognition during the genocides.

“On HMD we can honour the survivors of these regimes and challenge ourselves to use the lessons of their experience to inform our lives today.

    • You might be surprised to learn that there is a small German-Evangelical community is living in New Delhi-India and Pastor Lesinski is given this small flock spiritual support – and surprisingly they remembered Holocaust Day.

      Dear reader,
      Yesterday, for the twenty-second time, the day of commemoration of the victims of National Socialism was celebrated in Germany. This January 27 was fixed because in 1945 the Red Army liberated the people of Auschwitz from those who apparently tortured and killed them.

      If I think of the German concentration camp misdeeds, then I see Bergen-Belsen and Buchenwald in front of me. Those places that I visited several times, i.a. because in Bergen-Belsen a friend did his civilian service. His room was in one of the old SS dormitories. Little had changed, even the room numbers still hung over the doors. I imagined what it was like back then. The way to the camp and back to the bedroom. The everyday life of the SS people in the hallways, in the small kitchen. At the time, this incredible normality scared me the most. Under the stench of the chimneys, the men played cards, cooked food, laughed and slept. In Buchenwald there was even a zoo for their relaxation, which joined directly to the fence. In addition to the animals in their cages, the camp inmates were also to be seen in their cage; a deliberately chosen architectural language that degraded prisoners of domination….

      He sent me the entire sermon which would be too long for the readers, but this is the small community I am supporting to make a better worldwww.evangdelhi.de:

        • Germar Rudolfs latest video Probing the Holocaust, sadly the Jews don’t want any probing and after watching this you will understand why.
