The Holocaust

The "Holocaust" refers to the period from 30 January 1933, when Hitler became Chancellor of Germany, to 8 May 1945, the end of the war in Europe. Millions of Jewish men, women, and children were murdered by Hitler and his brutal cohorts during this time. While it is impossible to ascertain the exact number of Jewish victims six million is the round figure. Auschwitz concentration camp was a network of concentration and death camps built and operated by the Third Reich in Polish areas annexed by Nazi Germany during World War II. Buchenwald was a German Nazi concentration camp established near Weimar, Germany, in July 1937, one of the first and largest of the concentration camps on German soil. It was in holes such as these that Jewish victims were starved, tortured, subjected to slave labor, beatings, inhumane medical experiments and murdered in gas chambers by the millions. Elderly Holocaust survivors in Israel suffer mental and physical torments to this day. Their children in many cases bear traumatic scars as a result of being raised by such emotionally and physically shattered parents. (VFI News)

After the Holocaust, most of the world hoped - if not agreed - that the worst page in human history would never be repeated. Tragically, we see the alarming rise of anti-Semitism across the globe putting this hope/belief/assumption to a severe test. Pray that the deadly evil once again rearing its head against the Jewish people - and now Israel - will be exposed, fought against and defeated. “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” Jas. 5:16
