Holocaust Remembrance Day

jews-8651165I wrote this in honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day. It is inspired by my visit to Yad Vashem: The Holocaust Museum in Israel.

 

Yad Vashem


A garden of trees

Righteous among Nations

Memorial of those who said enough

Who would not be blind

Hall of memory

Ghosts of the past

Lives cut short

Remembered here

The Hall of Names

A statement

We shall not forget

Each was important

Each lived

Each died in the name of hate

Remember

Remember the silent millions

Remember and let it not happen again

One thought on “Holocaust Remembrance Day

  1. A powerful tribute. I’ve never been, but I can imagine what it must have felt like being surrounded by the people in that domed museum from your photograph. Thank you.
