Holocaust Remembrance Day

Via Stand With Us 

‎”Triumph of the Return” – On September 4, 2003, in a large ceremony, the Israeli Air Force flew three f-15 jets over the Auschwitz concentration camp in a show of the Jewish people’s continued strength and triumph over past adversities.During the Holocaust (1939-1945) 6 million Jews were murdered at the hands of the Nazis and their collaborators. Millions of Jews and other victims of the Nazis were imprisoned, enslaved and murdered at Auschwitz and her sister camps.This visit was a testament to the world that the saying “never again” is not just a slogan.Many of the participants were the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors.

One Comment to “Holocaust Remembrance Day”

    Still not going to live in the middle east, though.
