International Holocaust Remembrance Day, or the International Day in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust, is an international memorial day on 27 January that commemorates the victims of the Holocaust. The date – January 27 – recalls the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp during the final year of World War II, according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
We must remember that this event was a reality. There are people who are still alive who were there. Remember the people who were lost to a very evil man named Adolf Hitler.
As a non-Jewish person I find Hanukkah to be a celebration that requires dedication. It’s interesting that the miracle of the lights is a great story of spiritual illumination as more candles are lit in the menorah.
I have made it known I am a supporter of Palestine because I know they are children of God too. With that being said, I have love for Jewish people. I have Jewish friends who are sad about what is going on. Recent acts of antisemitism are only making matters worse. Citizens of both places are caught in the middle of an ancient struggle they did not start but still goes on to this day.
It is my hope that cooler heads will prevail, and that the violence will stop. It is terribly tragic to see what is happening but please find a way forward that does not include anti-Semitic acts that means more bloodshed. Let there be peace that is lasting.
