Yom HaShoah – Holocaust Remembrance Day

Yom HaShoah begins at sundown, tonight, May 1, 2019, and ends at sundown May 2, 2019. Let us never forget…

Here is a link, to ‘Velveteen Rabbi’ Blog where you can read twelve poems for Yom HaShoah that were written by different individuals, and also a memorial prayer.

If you want to learn more about the Holocaust, visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

You might also want to visit Yad Vashem – The World Holocaust Remembrance Center.

This poem was written during WWII, etched on the wall of a cellar in Cologne, Germany, by a Jewish person in hiding. It has also been attributed to being written on a wall in a Nazi concentration camp, in Cologne, Germany.

“I believe in the sun
even when it is not shining
And I believe in love,
even when there’s no one there.
And I believe in God,
even when he is silent.
– Unknown
