Holocaust Remembrance Day – A Hatikva of Hope in Bergen-Belsen

by | 19th, April 2012

TODAY in Israel it’s Holocaust Remembrance Day. There is no escaping the Holocaust in Jewish history. It’s there. It’s always there. Can Jews move on? This is not a wish to deny it – only a conniving racist would side with the Nazis who make liars of the dead and the Islamists who think that it never happened but it would be good idea if it did. It’s a desire not to be defined by persecution and murder. Six million Jews died in the Holocaust. How can Jews move on? How can Jews not be defined by anti-Semitism?

A reader sends us this video of Hatikva at Bergen-Belsen. It’s April 20th 1945 in the death camp. Hope springs. Life endures…
