Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) and the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising




While Anonymous and their hacker-Jew-hater-pals are trying to wipe another 6 million Jews off the face of the Earth, those of us that reside in a civilized world will spend tonight and tomorrow remembering the 6 million Jews slaughtered for the crime of being a  Jew. This year’s Yom HaShoah also coincides with the 70th anniversary of the uprising of the Warsaw Ghetto.

During his visit to Yad Vashem President Obama said these poignant words, “Israel does not exist because of the Holocaust, but because Israel exists there will never be another holocaust.”

Kaddish..the Jewish mourner's prayer:





********
Remember as parents of special needs children, before the Nazis began their slaughter of the Jewish people of Europe, they practiced their killing machine on those with disabilities. As I say, my boys are twice threatened by such hatred.A hatred that according to the Simon Wiesenthal Center is once again on the rise. Last year alone, antisemitic attacks worldwide rose over 30%, the worst of it in France.
