Today is Yom Hashoah (יום השואה), or Holocaust remembrance day. Today is a day where Jews around the world remember. They remember and commemorate the 6 millions Jews that were slaughtered throughout the holocaust, from 1939-1945. Out of the 6 million, around 1.5 million were children. 1.5 million children that had a future. 1.5 million children that would have had children, who would have had children. One of them could have had been the scientist who finds a cure for cancer. One of them could have been a researcher that discovers a groundbreaking technological breakout. All this was blackened out by the mass murdering of the Jews by Nazi Germany and it’s allies. Take a moment out of your day just to remember, and understand the horrors that one group can cause, and how many lives were lost, due to ignorance, hatred and racism.
Never forget the 6 million that perished.
