It was devisating to hear that entire Jewish communities had been destroyed. Jewish people want to remember such events because it is part of their history. Remebering past events can teach us and help us honor those who were lost. Remember is also a way to hold onto to God’s hope and the promises He has for us.
To keep man’s inhumanity toward man in front of us so it’s never forgotten and hopefully never repeated. It’s also a testimony to overcoming the horrible events and God’s continued promise for this people.
My reaction to hearing that 5,000 Jewish communities had been destroyed during the Holocaust, which numbered approximately 6 million Jewish men, women, and children is absolute horror and terrific sadness. I think that the Jewish people are honoring and highlighting the perseverance, faith, and lives of the people.
In devastation, the Jewish people can hold tight to the promises of God and still see how far they’ve come. Jeremiah 29:11 says “for I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you…..”
It is devastating to know that entire communities were destroyed. The Jewish people want to remember this because it shows that despite the destruction, God did not let the Jews be completely destroyed. God still has plans for His people.
They do remember because devil had conspiracy to wipe all away from the surface of the earth and God’s mercy will not allow such destruction to them, also they remember the promises of God to them and covenant made with their forefathers.
They need to remember that Satan wants to wipe them out, but God will not allow that. They also need to remember the promise of God’s restoration in the end times.
Sadness and despair. I believe they want to remember such events for 2 reasons: 1) that things would never happen again and 2) to show they have a God who restored his people, so they wouldn’t stray from God again
It seems unbelievable to me that such an event could take place. That so many people (Germans) could be capable of so much evil. The suffering of the Jewish people and their restoration were all part of God’s plan… They want to remember that.
It was the Germans plan to obliterate the entire Jewish people which I found sickening. Because they are doomed to repeat their suffering if they do not study their history, learn from it, repent, and be obedient to God.
Again the remembrance of these horrible things just shows how God’s hand has been on his people through good times and bad times.
Understandably this made me very angry. It was pure evil to do this. I think if people don’t remember what happened they are doomed to allow this horror to happen again. The Bible says that “my people perish for a lack of knowledge.”
