turquoise door

I liked the way one could see windows through the window of the door. I also liked the fact that there were other doors, that one could see while looking through the window of the turquoise door.

The door above gave me a sense of warmth due to the tones. I liked the arched shape to it, and how it was ‘encapsulated’ within the arches.

I took the photo of the doors above while walking on a trail in a local park, recently.

Elie Wiesel has Died

“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.” Elie Wiesel

“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.” Elie Wiesel

Elie Wiesel has died. My heart is filled with such sadness. What a loss for humanity.

A”H Rest in Peace, Elie Wiesel.

Lithuania Holocaust Escape Tunnel

sunset bw

The New York Times published this story. “A team of archaeologists and mapmakers say they have uncovered a forgotten tunnel that 80 Jews dug largely by hand as they tried to escape from a Nazi extermination site in Lithuania about 70 years ago.” Read the rest of the story at this NY Times link.

This article reminds me of Father Patrick Dubois and his extensive research into the Holocaust and genocidal practices. His book, The Holocaust by Bullets: A Priest’s Journey to Uncover the Truth Behind the Murder of 1.5 Million Jews, is extremely compelling and important.

Here is a link to a New York Times article regarding Father Patrick Dubois and his unending endeavors.

Let us always remember the lives of those who came before us.

Shabbat Shalom!
