Roro's new blog on Holocaust Remembrance

  • Marks - RoRo HOME
Never again means never, ever again. Am Yisrael Chai. "Whole communities, brilliant scientists, educators, artists, musicians and potential future finders of cures to disease and contributors to the world were wiped out because of an idea,: writes Rolene Marks passionately. "Fueled by words and perpetrated by an educated mass that were whipped into a frenzy of hatred." Read Roro's latest blog which adds to our offering on World Holocaust Day...

Weapons of words

Today is International Holocaust Memorial day. On this solemn day, we mark the tragedy of all human tragedies, the Holocaust. We remember the 6 million Jews marked for death and destroyed. We remember the millions of Homosexuals, Gypsies, political dissidents and others who were deemed “undesirable” by the Nazi killing machine.

So starts Roro's excellent and emotive blog posted today.

27 January is the date that the Auschwitz death camp was liberated by the Soviet Red Army in 1945 - and, as such, the United Nations has designated it in perpetual memorium.

"As the world became aware of the immense atrocities of the Holocaust, it must be noted that the shattering of glass on Kristallnacht that accompanied the destruction of holy synagogues and the looting of stores and homes started with words. The gas chambers of Auschwitz and other death camps and the crematoria were built on incitement," writes Rolene Marks.
