International Holocaust Remembrance Day - January 27th

Auschwitz extermination camp

Auschwitz extermination camp

International Holocaust Remembrance Day was January 27 this year, the day when 67 years ago, the Red army liberated the Auschwitz extermination camp. Some countries are claiming that the Holocaust did not happen and are taking the recorded history out of their school textbooks.

The Holocaust must always be fresh in our minds and souls, in the conscience of humanity, and should serve as a warning for all time. Recently, Newt Gingrich spoke before the Republican Jewish Coalition and warned that if Iran gets a nuclear weapon, it could lead to a second Holocaust. Iran is well on their way.

70 years ago desperate calls to bomb the extermination camps and the railroad lines leading to them were repeatedly rejected. One can compare that scenario to the Israeli warning against Iran's nuclear aspirations. How will the world respond? When I heard Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at a Summit with Christians United for Israel last July, he said: 'Never Again' – we mean it." The last thing he said to us was this: “For nearly 4,000 years, Jews have lived continuously in this land. We plan to restore our sovereignty here. We Jews have returned home and we are here to stay. The people of Israel know you will always stand by their side. We appreciate the depth of your commitment. May God bless you and the United States of America.”

Teach your children about the atrocities of the Holocaust and do not let the world forget. We can learn from history so we do not allow this to happen again!
