Across the globe at sundown on Monday, Jews will enter into commemoration of the 6 million+ Jews murdered in the Holocaust. International Holocaust Remembrance Day is recognized in January, and many commemorative events are held worldwide. Yom HaShoah, Israel’s commemorative day, though, happens in a couple days.
Imagine the scenario. Jews were taken from their homes, primarily in Europe, to ghettos, then often herded like cattle into rail cars and sent to places such as Treblinka or Auschwitz-Birkenau, death camps where millions were exterminated.
What would it be like to visit those death camps? Well, let’s take a sobering trip there through the eyes of NBA star, Ray Allen.
As our Jewish friends honor those who perished, please pray for them.
