Yom HaShoah

Tonight is Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day in Israel. I wanted to mark it by posting something sombre, poignant, and meaningful – or any one of these three. But, after watching the broadcast of the national memorial from Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, and the few, short stories of the survivors (and some who did not survive) I have nothing left inside of me. How must those who experienced the Holocaust, who lived through it, feel?

There are some times when it is appropriate only to say nothing.
