I am in complete agreement. Today, Holocaust Remembrance Day, serves to kick me in the Ass. There is no space in me to put up with any pro-Palestinian, Leftist, Liberal, progressive, peace-activists, tree-hugging, grungy/dirty wall street loser bullshit. Learn your freakin history Zombie Morons. Look into the faces of the Murdered Innocence! You pathetic losers are inhumane and morally culpable. Go live in any of the countries surrounding Israel, of which you ignore in your protests. F’n A-holes.

“From Generation to Generation” - The Story of Yisrael Aviram

Yad Vashem
Yad Vashem

The following video tells the story of Holocaust survivor Yisrael Aviram (Kalisky). Yisrael was born in 1926 in the city of Lodz, Poland. He was thirteen years old when the Second World War broke out.

In 1940, Yisrael and his family were forcibly deported to the city’s ghetto, where he joined a Zionist youth group. In August 1944, he was sent to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and extermination camp. Yisrael’s mother was murdered there, and his sister was sent to a labor camp. He was transported, along with his father, to the Jaworzno concentration and labor camp, where they performed forced labor mining coal.

In January of 1945, Yisrael and his father were liberated in the Blechhammer concentration camp. After reuniting with Yisrael’s sister Henia, and following two months of wandering through Europe, the three arrived at the La Spezia port in Italy. In 1946 they immigrated to Israel, arriving upon the Dov Hoz illegal immigrant ship, and were among the founders of the Ramot Menashe kibbutz. Yisrael has three children and nine grandchildren.

The film is part of the “Witnesses and Education” series, a joint production of the International School for Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem and the Center for Multimedia Assisted Instruction of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

The series shows survivors recounting their life stories — before, during, and after the Holocaust. Each title is filmed on location where the events originally transpired.

This man is Rabbi Zalman Schneerson. A cousin of the Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson. He lived in France at the outbreak of WWII and remained there during the holocaust. He was one of the reasons that the Rebbe moved to France in the 30’s. During the holocaust, he opened a children’s home to save Jewish children from the hands of the Nazis. My great grandparents handed their three children over to him before they were both sent to Auschwitz and killed. He sent groups of the children on to Switzerland during the war with adults to watch over them. When my grandfather, his sister and brother had to cross the border, Rabbi Schneerson blessed my great aunt so that she would safely get through. After a few failed attempts, she finally led the children to safety. She was only 12 years old at the time. This tzaddik had not gotten the recognition he deserved for what he did during the war but I owe this man my life. Without him, my grandfather would have been murdered and I would never have been born. אך צדיקים יודו לשמך ישבו ישרים את פניך.
