A Quote for Yom Ha Shoah – Holocaust Rememberance Day

Saturday, January 27th, 2018

“This was the end. This was the sum total of hundreds of generations of building, of Torah, of piety, of freethinking, of Zionism, of Bundism, of struggles and of battles, of the hopes of an entire people – this empty desert I looked around me at what had been the Jews of Warsaw. I felt one hope, and I feel it now. May this sea of emptiness bubble and boil, may it cry out eternal condemnation of the murderers and pilagers, may it be forever the shame of the civilized world which saw and heard and chose to remain silent”
