Yom Ha’Shoah – Holocaust Memorial Day

HBO series Band of Brothers

If you have had the opportunity to watch the HBO series Band of Brothers, the story that followed Easy Company of the 101st airborne division throughout WWII, you will know what I mean by “Why We Fight”.

It was in this 9th episode where we come to the realization that the war in which they were fighting was more inhumane than the war itself.  This was a real atrocity of WWII, the “final solution” as the Nazi regime named it was to eliminate the Jewish people.

Today, April 16th is a very important day- it is the 70th year commemorating the end of WWII and the end of the Holocaust, today is Holocaust Remembrance Day, and Israel remembered, and so do I.

Warsaw Ghetto Uprising

Time published an article as to why Holocaust is remembered on (Nisan 27- Hebrew calendar) April 16th as opposed to the liberation of Auschwitz on January 27th.  Today as Israel remembered, sirens sounded and the Jewish nation came to a stand still serving as a reminder that NEVER AGAIN will something like this happen.
