Holocaust Rememberence Day

Today marks the 71st anniversary of the lib­er­a­tion of Aus­chwitz-Birkenau, a place which is known world wide for the atro­cit­ies that our Jew­ish broth­ers and sis­ters faced dur­ing the Second World War. Atro­cit­ies that I did­n’t know the depth of fully until I vis­ited Yad Vashem in Jer­u­s­alem on my first vis­it to Israel a few years ago. Read­ing through the account of the holo­caust in that place made me feel phys­ic­ally sick, I knew from my his­tory les­sons at school that it was a massive oper­a­tion but I had no clue of the depth of it. No clue of how far it went in terms of the dehu­man­ising treat­ment the Jews had to endure.
Sadly in today’s soci­ety we are again see­ing the rise of anti-semit­ism. It takes dif­fer­ent forms, wheth­er it’s through the BDS move­ment or jihadi attacks in both Israel and Europe, this is what they are and to call them any­thing else for­gets the begin­nings of moments in his­tory like the holocaust.
Today is a day we must remem­ber, espe­cially in the cur­rent cul­tur­al cli­mate, and stand side by side with our Jew­ish broth­ers and sis­ters. As a child of Christ I have an even great­er respons­ib­il­ity to stand with Israel and show them the love their Mes­si­ah has for them.
