Thoughts about the Holocaust, on Holocaust Remembrance Day

Some anniversaries are celebrated, while others are observed so that the events they commemorate will not be repeated.

Today (January 27th) is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, set on the date of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp in 1945.

Nazi Germany murdered up to a third of the world's Jews in the Holocaust, and much has changed in the world since that time. Or has it? The marchers in Charlottesville in 2017 chanted "Jews will not replace us."

We observe the date with two Rogue Valley residents: Irving Lubliner, who wrote a book, Only Hope, about his mother surviving the Holocaust, and Rabbi David Zaslow, who leads the Havurah Shir Hadash synagogue.
