Faces of the Holocaust

Those eyes have seen horrors beyond what can be told. Those hands once held desperately to the grip of loved ones, only to be ripped from each other and hauled away like cattle to concentration camps. Their hearts experienced the penetrating ache of utter loneliness as they realized the majority, if not all of their relatives perished. Those cheeks felt hot tears streaming down, day after day, year after year. A living nightmare. And yet they are here. They are living and breathing. Against all odds. These are the faces of survivors.

Throughout history, they have been the most oppressed people on the face of the planet. Their enemies surround them on all sides, (even today... like - right this second) and the kingdom of hell wishes to wipe them off the face of the planet. But this will never be. Because He promised.

Today, we grieve. We remember. We stand with you. #holocaustremembranceday #yomhashoah // 

The promise: “This is what the Lord says, he who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar— the Lord Almighty is his name: “Only if these decrees vanish from my sight,” declares the Lord, “will Israel ever cease being a nation before me.” This is what the Lord says, “Only if the heavens above can be measured and the foundations of the earth below be searched out will I reject all the descendants of Israel because of all they have done,” declares the Lord.” Jeremiah 31:35-37 @ Jerusalem, Israel
