Holocaust Remembrance Days - Never Forget



I hope everyone had a happy Holocaust Remembrance Day. January 27 and April 24 are two days that we remember the Holocaust that killed 6 million Jews. Sadly, many people forget the Jewish Holocaust in 1919 that also targeted 6 million Jews.

Hopefully, we can raise awareness of the first Holocaust that is largely forgotten.

  2. Let us not dwell on the 6 trillion.
    Let us instead rejoice at the saving of the 3 million Auschwitz Jews when the memorial epitaph was changed overnight from 4 million to 1 million.

  3. I'm a little older than you and don't remember any talk about the Holocaust outside of Ann Frank when I was a child. I think that the WWII Holocaust came to the fore beginning with the tv miniseries Holocaust broadcast in 1978. The Holocaust opened up a whole new story line for tv and movies. More importantly, the Holocaust became a stick to beat Germans, Western Civilization and Christianity and drum up support for Israel. Someone once pointed out pointed out to the effect that at one time the Holocaust was simply one feature of WWII. Eventually, WWII was the backdrop to the Holocaust.

  5. You are being ironic! Trump of course was right in calling on us to remember ALL the victims, Jews weren't the only people who were exterminated by the Nazis. Why should the Jews get all the sympathy?
