I am a parent and my job like any other parent’s job on the globe is to keep my children safe from harm or at least reduce the risk of harm in whatever way possible.
That is an extremely difficult job in normal circumstances.During the Holocaust this was often impossible. I can understand that parents then would try anything to safe their children, but I can’t fathom the anxiety and fear they had,whilst re-assuring their kids, giving them hope where they knew there was no hope to be given.
Below are pictures of families with parents who tried to do an impossible job, giving hope and tried to remain strong for their children.
I don’t know who these parents were all I know is they were heroes
