The Holocaust has scarred us, a yetzer hara (sneaky bastard of a voice in our heads), that keeps trying to tell us how we are defined by our past, controlled by events that happened to us, instead of using those moments as points of growth. And, in a weird way, that’s why all those images of us looking so helpless, so gaunt, in heaps of nameless bodies, have become a morbid fascination for us. But in the end, they do one thing that we desperately need as a people: they tell the real story of the Holocaust. For some reason, we don’t usually hear about American Jewry during World War II, so you may be heartened to know that in 1933, American Jews organized a nation-wide boycott of Nazi-Germany. This incredible image depicts Jews, not in hiding, but within an transit camp in Holland lighting a Menorah on Hanukkah. This image is of a man in the Jewish Brigade, a segment of the British Army that fought the Germans in Italy in 1944. Taken in Buchenwald just after its liberation by the photographer Margaret Bourke-White, this image is so powerful not just because it shows the pure joy of liberation, but because it turns these men who we have almost turned into mythic creatures into normal folks.
This photo has made the rounds after the recent passing of Rabbi Herschel Schachter, depicted leading this Shabbat service shortly after the liberation of Buchenwald. This once in a lifetime image depicts Holocaust survivors at the moment of realizing they are liberated. This image, taken by the photographer and writer, Ruth Gruber, depicts a group of Holocaust survivors attempting to enter the United States on a ship called the Henry Gibbins that was being hunted by the Nazis. Taken in Rishon Lezion, Israel, this image depicts two Holocaust survivors at their wedding.
This image of an unknown teenager singing in a DP Camp (where they held Holocaust survivors for a while) is just so beautiful.
Aleksander Kulisiewicz, a Holocaust survivor, composed 54 songs while he was in a concentration camp, and performed them for fellow inmates in secret gatherings.
This image, showing a Holocaust survivor looking into the eyes of her granddaughter, went a bit viral on Facebook, and you can read the story about how it got digitized here. Perhaps one of the most gorgeous photos ever taken at Yad Vashem, the Holocaust museum in Jerusalem.
The moment I saw this image of this Holocaust survivor who went skydiving in San Diego with his grandson (not pictured), I knew this was the image I had to end this post on. Christians and Catholics have just been identified as subversive and on the level of Al-Quiada by this administration…history repeats itself.


Beautiful recognition of the strength of the human spirit, but where was the rally picture taken. It’s good to know that in a world where anti-Semitic propoganda is churned out by the ream, there ae still some Gentiles who see through the lies and the filth. You prop up the holocrock because you get money from sympathetic white people and the millions they extort from the less gullible who are cowed into paying by holocrock laws. The State of Israel was not yet established, but to Jews it was always Eretz Yisrael, the Land of Israel. Only recently has the historiography of the Shoah begun to focus on the issue of the fate of Jewish children, raising many important and interesting questions.A  What was the Nazi policy toward children?A  What was the impact of anti-Jewish legislation on Jewish children?A  How did Jewish communities and institutions cope with the effects of Nazi policy on children? From the day the Nazis came to power Jewish children became victims of antisemitic legislation, first in Germany and, as time passed, in every other country the Germans conquered or forged an alliance.A  The parents and families of these children were unable to grant them the security and protection they needed. As the war broke out and antisemitic legislation worsened, the suffering of Jewish children increased: many were doomed to the horrific suffering of the ghettos.
When the deportations to the death camps begun, a chasm opened up in the lives of Jewish children.
Important primary sources for the study of children have been ignored for many decades and include official papers and documents, diaries and memoirs, private correspondence between family members.A  The personal materials are extremely interesting when focusing on social aspects. Last but not least, more archival material dealing with children, mainly from the former USSR, has only recently become available for public review.A  This brings researchers to investigate new fields as well as to reassess previously held assumptions and conclusions. The historical investigation of children during the Shoah is important for it keeps alive the memory of those who died and safeguards the experiences of those who survived.A  It enables us to understand, more fully and more extensively, the impact of the Shoah.
We, and by extension the rest of the world, have chosen to define the Holocaust with these images. Such a show of support, in so united a way is displayed beautifully in this picture from a rally in 1937. It depicts Jews in hiding during Passover in Poland, baking matzos, their faces alight and happy. There is something beyond moving about this image that shows the prisoners, still in their garb, still in their prison, but liberated and celebrating the most important day of the week. This is such candid, raw photo you would think it was taken on a cellphone at the spur of the moment. Depicting a woman at the shortly after her liberation, so skinny you can hardly see her, her face is aglow and alive. It depicts his grandfather, recently liberated from the Holocaust, aiming a gun at a Nazi soldier.


The bride (center), is named Chana Keller, and she survived a 800 km (500 mile) death march. There’s something so special about seeing an image of so many survivors in one picture, smiling, and with this girl in the center looking absolutely joyous.
This image shows a young religious Jew looking up into the Hall of Names, an exhibit in the museum.
Unfortunately the name persevered long after the fall of the Roman empire and the extinction of the Philistines. Hidden under false identities in cities, on farms and in convents and monasteries, young Jewish children survived the war by the grace of kindhearted strangers.
A story that shows our inner power, our inner turmoil in dealing with a situation we cannot comprehend, our attempts to gain justice, and our final steps into moving above and beyond our past and into a new future. It’s hard to know just what is happening in this photo or what happened afterwards, but it starkly depicts another side of the liberation of the Jews. Moments later, thousands of angry citizens swarmed the men and chased them until they finally locked themselves in a bathroom in a train station and had to be rescued by police.
Nothing better encapsualtes the true freedom we can have when we use our past to grow instead of hold us back.
I think that now Israel has been restored, it is better to refer to it as Israel instead of some made-up Romanesque name, which is nothing but a slap in the face to our ancestors who were persecuted by the Romans. Some of them found refuge in the homes of non-Jews.A  Many were hidden in convents, monasteries and boarding schools.
Whether this photo inspires or depresses, it shows us just how complicated the idea of justice can be, and how Jews have still struggled with it so many years after the Holocaust. The next day they were split up to different camps and didn’t know if the other was alive for the remainder of the war.
Others were forced to roam through forests and villages, hunting for food and relying entirely on their own ingenuity and resourcefulness.
They suffered unmentionable horrors, yet those who survived rose above the nightmare and went on to do wonderful things. Some were so young when separated from their parents that they forgot their real names and identity.A  Of course not all Jewish children were able to find a refuge and many were caught and sent to the death camps.
