Although there have been many genocides . the Holocaust is by far the worst. The middle ages are often referred to as the dark ages but I really think the Dark Ages were from 1933 to 1945. However with every darkness there is also light. This blog is dealing with those few bits of line that shone during those dark ages.
The picture above is a picture of an American Jews organized nation-wide boycott of Nazi-Germany. Such a show of support, in so united a way is displayed beautifully in this picture from a rally in 1937.
This amazing photo depicts Jews in hiding during Passover in Poland, baking matzos.
This image is of a man in the Jewish Brigade, a segment of the British Army that fought the Germans in Italy in 1944. The bomb says “Hitler’s Gift”
This photo has made the rounds after the recent passing of Rabbi Herschel Schachter, depicted leading this Shabbat service shortly after the liberation of Buchenwald. There is something beyond moving about this image that shows the prisoners, still in their garb, still in their prison, but liberated and celebrating the most important day of the week.
A mother and child at the moment of realization that they have been liberated.The looks on their faces and the joy of the people behind them says it all.
That’s how feels like when the shoe is on the other foot.A victim, recently liberated from the Holocaust, aiming a gun at a Nazi soldier. It’s hard to know just what is happening in this photo or what happened afterwards, but it starkly depicts another side of the liberation of the Jews.
