Remember and Reflect


Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day in this part of the world, 72 years since the closing of that terrible concentration camp, Auschwitz,    Unfortunately the day came too late for the many thousands who had already died there.

We visited the Jewish cemetery in Frankfurt recently, and found it a very moving place, especially  the Jewish Holocaust Memorial Wall, a very personal memorial that the city of Frankfurt has created, to honor the memory of the 12,000 Frankfurt Jewish Citizens who lost their lives during the Holocaust, including Anne, Margot and Edith Frank.  The wall has the names of the Jewish people that died in the various camps, some show only the date of birth of the person, and the camp where they died,  as no records were kept of the actual dates of death in these places.

Here are some photos we took during our visit.

    Very moving.. very few of that generation left to tell their stories and so important to keep the memory alive.

    I see the pebbles people have left. It must have been a very solemn and extraordinary experience to have been there.

    Oh Joan, what a dreadful part of our history. We simply have to ensure we never return to such hate.
