Yom HaShoah "In all their distress He too was distressed and the angel of His presence saved them" Isaiah 63:9
Today is Yom HaShoah. Today we remember the six million Hebrews that were put to death in Death camps, who died for the crime of being Hebrew. Thanks to writings of Martin Luther, who's love for the Chosen people would go from love to hate (all because they rejected his preaching,) Hitler took his teaching and ran with them. They, along with the hatred in his soul flamed the fire that would burn the bodies of men, women and children.
On this day, we rememeber those few gentilies, like Corrie Ten Boone who, along with her family, would hide and care for hebrews until they themselves were taken to one of the camps. Miss Ten Boone would lose many of her own family memebers, including her beloved sister Besty.
Years before, Mr. Ten Boone taught his children that the Jews were G-d Chosen people, the people who gave the world the Word of G-d, the Scriptures. And that one day, they maybe called to care for G-d's beloved. Yes, G-d loves all all mankind, but the Scripture clearly state that the Hebrew people are His special treasure.
That day came.
There are many such stories. Many families that would take in Jewish children and raise them until they can be returned to thier parnets or other family memebers. Or if lost, they would adopt the child.
I light a candle in memory of all who entered the Gas Chambers, for it wasn't just six million Hebrews. There were others who stood against Hilter, against the war, those who were mentality ill, gypsies, Jehovah' Witnesses, etc.
But lest we forget: there are still people, leaders who would still love to see the state of Isreal ran into the sea, to wipe off the face of the earth of every man, woman and child who are the children of Abraham.
To that we say:
