25 years ago today, Schindler’s List showed the world what the Holocaust was. The world turned its back on the Nation of Israel then and turns its back on the Nation of Israel today. You cannot show sympathy for dead Jews, without supporting the living. Defend Israel! #schindlerslist #israel #shoah #ישראלי #israele #zionism #zionist #holocaust #yadvashem

A Declaração Universal dos Direitos Humanos completa hoje 70 anos. 
Seus 30 artigos tem como meta impedir que situações como essa aconteçam novamente na história da Humanidade. 
O vídeo em questão é sobre Oskar Schindler, que na WWII salvou a vida de 1200 judeus e teve a história retratada no filme “A lista de Schindler”.

"Arbeit macht frei". O trabalho liberta, diziam os alemães.
Quanta gente sonhou os últimos anos de vida em passar uma segunda vez por esses portões, assim como eu fiz, mas a única saída foi pelas chaminés dos crematórios das câmaras de gás. (Foto 3)
Não vou escrever muito sobre auschwitz hoje. É uma visita pesada e intensa.
Mas é algo que precisa ser visto e compartilhado.
Os últimos sobreviventes do holocausto estão com idade avançada. Quando o último sobrevivente morrer, nós seremos as únicas testemunhas do que aconteceu, e é nossa obrigação como seres humanos assimilar os fatos desse local pra evitar que isso ocorra de novo.

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the @unitednations #GenocideConvention, the first global #humanrights treaty. Following the atrocities of #WWII, the world pledged to prevent and punish acts of #genocide, yet such acts still occur. This photo shows #Holocaust survivors meeting with #Tutsi survivors of the #Rwandan Genocide during a special seminar at #YadVashem in 2005. Participants learned how Yad Vashem commemorates, documents, and educates about the Holocaust. Today and every day, we vow to remember and honor the victims of genocide in order to ensure that the world will #neverforget.

Today would have been the 105th birthday of the Righteous Among the Nations, pastor Idebert Exbrayat. One night in late August 1942, he was awakened by a knock on his front door and was astonished to find his neighbor, the rabbi, his wife and 5 children, all seeking refuge from the police. The Exbrayats welcomed the family and agreed to shelter them. Thus began a new and dangerous chapter in the lives of the Exbrayat family, focused on saving Jews. The 30-year-old Exbrayat and his wife Yvonne lived in Rodez (France), which was in the unoccupied zone until November 1942. Pastor Exbrayat and his wife joined the underground group of 8 Jews in their extremely dangerous work. Eventually, the Germans killed 4 members of the group and captured and deported two others. Thanks to the Exbrayats, many Jews survived the Holocaust. On September 13, 1979, Yad Vashem recognized Pastor Idebert Exbrayat and his wife Yvonne as Righteous Among the Nations.

Against any oblivion

Well, I think we are all influencers. 
That’s why it is important to share not just the good and beautiful parts of life.

Few days ago I went to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem.

I mean, to know something about this dark chapter of our civilization because of school is one thing, to see and feel it in Jerusalem is something completely different.

I think everyone should visit places like this to understand what happened in this time.

And to all the people, who sometimes say, it’s not longer necessary to justify ourselves, someday it’s enough to talk about it or we are not longer „guilty“, you didn’t get the point. 
You do not seem to understand why it is absolutely necessary not to forget.

Whenever someone ask me if iam „proud“ to be a German, I always hesitate to answer. Finally I say iam happy to be born in Germany (in a time, where there was no war). I mean, Its not an achievement, I just had luck.

Reflexão, emoção e conhecimento!
Conhecer a história para nunca mais se repetir!

Foi minha segunda vista ao Yad Vashem e desta vez consegui completar o caminho, triste por saber e entender um pouco do que aconteceu durante o Holocausto, porém feliz por conseguir refletir um pouco mais a fundo sobre tudo o que a história nos conta!

Independente de posição política, social, religiosa, independente de qualquer pensamento, negar o Holocausto é negar uma parte sombria de nossa história! Que saibamos aprender com os erros terríveis do passado, que saibamos reconhecer os erros, que saibamos viver em sociedade, que saibamos seguir em frente e não repetir os mesmos erros e principalmente que todos possam ser livres!

De todos os lugares de Israel, o Yad Vashem, ao meu entender, é visita obrigatória! .

We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Holocaust survivor, Flóra Klein, z”l. Klein and her son, Gene Simmons, were honored at our 2017 Salute to #Hollywood Benefit Gala, where they received the #Legacy Award. Born in Jánd, Hungary, Klein was just 14 when she and her family were sent to the #Nazi concentration camps. Only Flora and her brother Larry survived. The rest of their family was killed in the gas chambers. After the war, Klein emigrated to #Israel, where she gave birth to her son, @genesimmons (b. Chaim Witz). Klein later immigrated to the United States, where she supported her son’s music career with fierce love and pride. May her memory be for a blessing.

Oh my gosh, what a great experience photographing Holocaust Survivor Dora.  This is a woman who is so deeply grateful for her life each and every day.  After spending 18 months hidden in a pig pen covered with hay in a small farm in Poland, she treasures every glass of water she drinks and every breath she takes.  At 92 years old, she is content with who she is and the life she has, despite the many tragedies she has experienced, including the recent loss of her daughter.  When I asked her what she wanted to say to people who saw her portrait, she emphatically expressed how important it is that we are accepting and loving of one another.

A photograph taken in 1932 by Rachel, the wife of Rabbi Akiva Posner, of their candle-lit Hanukkah menorah against the backdrop of the Nazi flags flying from the building across from their home in Kiel, Germany. Rabbi Dr. Akiva Posner, Dr. of Philosophy from Halle-Wittenberg University, served from 1924–1933 as the last Rabbi of the community of Kiel. The Rabbi, his wife Rachel and their 3 children left Germany in 1933 and arrived in Eretz Israel in 1934. Some 80 years later, Akiva and Rachel Posner’s descendants continue to light Hanukkah candles using the same menorah that was brought to Israel from Kiel.

"Look at how a single candle can both defy and define darkness.” - Anne Frank

Photo and description by @yadvashem : On Hanukkah 1932, just prior to the elections that would bring Hitler to power, Rachel Posner, wife of Rabbi Dr. Akiva Posner, took this photo of the family Hanukkah menorah from the window ledge of the family home looking out on to the building across the road decorated with Nazi flags.

On the back of the photograph, Rachel Posner wrote in German (translated here): Chanukah 5692
(1932)
"Death to Judah"
So the flag says
"Judah will live forever"
So the light answers

Rabbi Dr. Akiva Posner, Doctor of Philosophy from Halle-Wittenberg University, served from 1924–1933 as the last Rabbi of the community of Kiel, Germany. #hanukkah #chanukah #happyhanukkah #holocaust #nazigermany #yadvashem #annefrank #diaryofayounggirl

Pictured in this 1939 photo, left to right: Sonja Ginsburg, my mother Ruth Nisse, and Esfir Treskunov, all age 16. My mother passed away in April 2018 at age 95. Her two best friends were murdered by Nazis in the winter of 1941 along with my mother's entire extended family. The Rumbula Massacre happened on two dates – November 30 and December 8 - in a forest on the outskirts of Riga, Latvia. This week, I light a candle each night for the loved ones I never met. Today, I offer you 'Mum & Me', a podcast of my late mother's story told in her own words.  In it, she speaks of insidious growth of anti-Semitism in pre-WW2 Latvia, her family's arduous year-long journey to safety in Montreal and the inter-generational family trauma that was sustained by the secrecy of her loss: https://www.marionkane.com/mum-and-me/

Все дороги ведут в Иерусалим...🕍 На протяжении полутора лет в Израиле,я все чаще ловлю себя на мысли,что Иерусалим-это мой любимый город.В нем есть какая-то магия,загадка...То,что хранится уже более 2000 лет...В нем по-особенному ощущается твоя принадлежность к еврейскому народу.
Сегодня я поставила галочку над ещё одним пунктом-посетить музей "Яд Вашем"
Это было очень интересно и одновременно тяжело.Смотреть на историю своего народа,своих близких.И это именно та боль,которая не утихнет никогда.
В музее представлено очень много экспозиций, которые дают возможность посмотреть на Холокост с абсолютно разных сторон:как со стороны пострадавших,так и со стороны нацистов.
В некоторых залах очень тяжело сдержать слезы(особое впечатление на меня произвели макеты лагерей смерти,инсталляция Аушвица и комната,в которой горит много-много огней и читаются имена погибших детей).
Вот такое впечатление у меня сложилось об этом месте.

Though to me, the toque looks like a beanie. Either way I’m gonna be warm!

Zweiter Tag unserer Fahrt nach #Israel #Palästina: In #TelAviv haben wir erfahren wie marginalisiert Flüchtlinge leben und sich die Armen solidarisieren. Außerdem gab es ein aufschlussreiches Gespräch mit Gewerkschafter*innen gehabt. Am ergreifendsten war der Besuch der #Holocaustgedenkstätte #YadVashem wo wir einen Kranz der Fraktion DIE LINKE. im Bundestag niederlegten. Zum Ausklang des Tages hatten wir noch ein Treffen mit dem פורום המשפחות השכולות Parents Circle Families Forum منتدى العائلات الثكلى, einer Basisorganisation von palästinensischen und israelischen Familien, die aufgrund des Konflikts unmittelbare Familienangehörige verloren haben.

“A country is not just what it does, it’s what it tolerates” #yadvashem #holocaustmuseum #childrensmemorial
Pained and speechless after a visit to the Holocaust Remberance Center in Jerusalem.  Words don't describe this place. The first video is of files containing the names of every Holocaust victim.  Another video, inside the synagogue here, is of artifacts taken from European synagogues.  Other images show Israeli soldier trainees visiting the site. Apparently as part of their training they visit signicant sites around the country. Also happened to catch a visit in the synagogue,  by a group of priests and nuns. Final image, looking up, is the view upon leaving the museum. #neverforget #yadvashem #why? #holocaust #shoah #holocaustmemorial #Jerusalem #Israel

"English cookies. Beat 4 egg whites with 12 dekagrams (units of 10 grams) sugar for a long time. Add 12 dekagrams almonds (not blanched), and 12 dekagrams flour. Bake in an oblong pan. Slice thinly the following day." Recipe that Františka Quastler (later Nurit Stern) wrote in her album in the Ravensbrück camp. The book contains dedications written by camp inmates and recipes that she wrote herself. Nurit relates that the women would “cook” in their imagination. She made the book using pages that she stole from the factory and then connected with wire. She hid the book and the pencil inside her mattress. She continued to write in it after her liberation in April 1945.

Heute besuchten wir Yad Vashem. Ein bewegender Besuch. Die #Shoa Gedenkstätte gibt den Opfern Namen und Gesicht, beleuchtet die Massenermordung der europäischen Juden vor allem aus Opferperspektive. Unsere Aufgabe ist es, solche Verbrechen nie wieder zuzulassen und schon die Anfänge faschistischer Ideologie im Keim zu ersticken.

This first photo was taken in 1932 by Rachel, wife of Rabbi Akiva Posner, and shows their candle-lit #Hanukkah #menorah against the backdrop of #Nazi flags flying from the building across from their home in Kiel, Germany. The second photo shows Yehuda Mansbach, grandson of the Posners, packing up the menorah to take home for the holiday. The menorah is on permanent display in the #Holocaust History Museum at #YadVashem, except during the eight days of Hanukkah, when Rachel and Akiva Posner’s family continues to light the Hanukkah candles using the same menorah that was brought to #Israel from Kiel. 🕎
