Never To Be Forgotten...

Today is Yom HaShoah/Holocaust Memorial Day 

Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Holocaust Day, is observed as Israel's day of commemoration for the approximately six million Jews and five million others who perished in the Holocaust as a result of the actions carried out by Nazi Germany and its accessories, and for the Jewish resistance in that period.
The Germans and their collaborators killed as many as 1.5 million children, including over a million Jewish children and tens of thousands of Romani children, German children with physical and mental disabilities living in institutions, Polish children, and children residing in the occupied Soviet Union.

Like many I remind myself how little the world has learned from this tragic period!

I like to remember those little ones, those innocents whose lives were snuffed like mere candles extinguished simply because their physical aspect, family origins and/or faith were different...
I only have to listen to the news to know we have much to learn from the present and the past if we are ever to have a future!

They should never be forgotten...


  1. A beautiful remembrance post Noelle. When I think of the things that are happening in the world at the moment, it scares me too. It makes me wonder if people learned from the horrible things that happened in the past....

    1. I fear Madelief we all seem to forget too easily and have learned very little.
      Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers always and thank you for stopping by,

  2. Thank you for this post Noelle! I hope future generations will remember what happened and what can happen all too quickly. May God have mercy on our land and on our world.
    Blessings always,

    1. As long as we allow Him in our lives, we shall have His mercy and He only knows how much we need it!
      I hope Spring has sprung your way as well: all the cherry trees are in bloom here (Brussels) along with thousand of tulips and Jonquils in the parks.


I love to share dreams and always enjoy meeting kindred spirits!
Thank you for stopping by!
