Remembering the Holocaust: We will Never Forget
Adolf Hitler was elected into leadership over Germany and during his time as a leader he only thought of Germans as the superior race and that every other race, especially Jews, were inferior. “In 1935, Jews lost their citizenship and right to marry non-Jewish persons. By 1938, thousands of synagogues and Jewish businesses were destroyed. Over 30,000 had been arrested for no other reason than being Jewish.” Jewish business owners found their businesses being marked with a star, so everyone knew it was a Jewish business and all Jews at some point were also marked with Jewish stars. Eventually, all Jews were transported to ghettos, and finally, to concentration camps. Upon arrival at these concentration camps, “people were immediately selected for work or death”. The mass murdering of Jews continued until May 7, 1945, when German forces surrendered to Allied forces.
These are tragic things that were done to the Jews and we can see the reality of evil through actions like this. When someone is not a believer in Jesus Christ they are controlled by darkness which is why these terrible evil actions were done to the Jews. But those who are lost can be saved and can repent and turn to Jesus. There is hope in Jesus Christ and you can read our stories at Meet My Father and be encouraged by how we are all saved by grace.

Sobering Interview with Holocaust Survivor
In this interview we hear from a Holocaust survivor and her tragic story. Hananya Naftali interviews a Holocaust survivor, Ida Greenberg, and asks her about her memories. Ida is 95 years old. When Naftali asked if she thought she would survive the Holocaust, she shared this response. “No one knew. It was hell. So, no one knew what tomorrow brings.” During the Holocaust, she only had one wish. “I wanted to see my parents but no…I didn’t manage to see them.” She continues to share how the Nazis came at night and took her parents. To those who deny the Holocaust ever occurred, Greenberg says, “…in every family of survivors, there is a remaining wound. How can someone say that it didn’t happened?”
It is so important for us to remember where we came from. We don’t want to repeat history and the tragic things that have happened like in The Holocaust. Watch or listen to hear the full interview and we want to hear from you! Also shared in this segment: Israel, Jew, Nazi. Greg and John shared in this segment.
Volunteer to Serve the Nation of Israel
Did you know that you can volunteer and serve the nation of Israel? Lori McKeeman shares her experience as she volunteered with IDF, Israeli Defense Force. She puts on the IDF uniform and even raises the Israeli flag. She has done anything from sweeping the streets to repairing communication equipment. She also witnesses to others about Jesus when she has the opportunity. On the weekends she can’t stay on the IDF base so a war widow “adopted” her and she stays at her home which is in Beer-Sheva and the Iron Dome can be seen from there. This interview is very encouraging. Listen or watch to hear the full interview and be encouraged.
