A Roma sono state divelte dal selciato  e rubate 19 pietre d'inciampo che ricordano altrettante persone deportate e morte nei lager nazisti. E allora tornan vive le paure e gli spettri di un tempo, torna in mente l'orrore e il terrore di certe immagini a noi note solo grazie ai documentari e ai film. Ma queste parole le capisce soltanto chi è un uomo. Perché chi compie un gesto simile agisce nell'oscurità,  preferisce le tenebre, le ombre sono il suo riflesso e non ha gli strumenti morali per capire la bellezza della vita, per amarla, per arricchirsi interiormente con i ricordi, anche non i propri. Chi compie un gesto simile non capisce come la vita di un'altra persona possa valere quanto la sua perché è un vile che necessita delle parole d'ordine di un padrone per sentirsi importante, per credersi libero nella schiavitù. Chi compie un gesto simile non capisce come qualcuno possa avere una propria identità, una propria forza morale e ideale senza dover per forza assoggettare gli altri. Ecco perché non potrete mai capirle. Siete la banalità del male.

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” 💞

-
A quote that is so true! You can make positive impacts on the world, even if it seems to be small! That was something that Anne Frank knew!

One of my favorite quotes!
Photo was taken in 1941.

The holocaust did not start by gas chambers and concentration camps. It started by hate crimes, racial slurs, discrimination, prejudices. Just like now. China is putting Muslims into camps to ‘rid them of Islam’. They want them to ‘worship’ the Chinese President and to abandon their way of life. They are being tortured, killed. And the bodies are cremated, so China has no ‘evidence’ of this ever occurring. NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT THIS, WE NEED TO RAISE AWARENESS. For our HUMAN muslim brothers and sisters. Above race, religion, gender we are all human. And this is unacceptable.

Tonight, Chanukah ends but the call to light candles against the darkness continues year round. Here we see defiance on the eighth night of Chanukah 1931 in Kiel, Germany. Rabbi Akiva Boruch Posner dared place the Menorah in the window, and his wife Rachel snapped this shot, writing on the back, “Chanukah, 5692. ‘Judea dies’, thus says the banner. ‘Judea will live forever’, thus respond the lights.” I'm reminded of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s statement, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that." Thanks to the rabbi and his wife lighting warnings against the encroaching darkness about to envelope Europe when so many counseled ignoring The National Socialists, all but eight of Kiel's 500 Jews fled and survived the Holocaust. It's also worth noting that we only learned the story behind the striking picture recently, thanks to dedicated researchers from the Holocaust History Museum. ... Yehudah Mansbuch, grandson of the Posners, wrote, "It was on a Friday afternoon right before Shabbat that this photo was taken. My grandmother realized that this was a historic photo, and she wrote on the back of the photo that ‘their flag wishes to see the death of Judah, but Judah will always survive, and our light will outlast their flag.’ My grandfather, the rabbi of the Kiel community, was making many speeches, both to Jews and Germans. To the Germans he warned that the road they were embarking on was not good for Jews or Germans, and to the Jews he warned that something terrible was brewing, and they would do well to leave Germany. My grandfather fled Germany in 1933, and moved to Israel. His community came to the train station to see him off, and before departed he urged his people to flee Germany while there’s still time." ...

📸🎞 from the @museumoftolerance . If you haven’t been there I highly recommend it! 😊
I chose to share them today in honor of Nelly Sachs a German-Swedish poet and playwright:
“World, they have taken the small children like butterflies and thrown them, beating their wings, into the fire.”
This made me reflect on our future and something Nietzsche expressed:
“The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.”
There’s so much power and truth behind this. It’s so important to keep an open mind and to respect and value all. The importance of diversity and tolerance is unmeasurable, so I wanted to end with something Voltaire said:
“I might disagree with your opinion, but I am willing to give my life for your right to express it.”

• strašně moc lidí si o mně musí myslet jaká jsem asociální protivná blbka. Sakra vlastně mají dost pravdu. Jenže oni neví, že jsem ještě před pár lety nedokázala mluvit s nikým koho jsem neznala několik měsíců a i tak jsem kvůli svému pohledu na svět a bordelu v duši nebyla schopná někdy ani odpovědět na pozdrav nebo si s někým podat ruku. Pamatuju si na tuhle akci, co je na fotce, všichni se tam spolu seznamovali a já byla v koutě s druhou flaškou vína abych dokázala vydržet to, že budu před zraky cizích lidí a budou na mě sahat, umocnilo to natolik ten zážitek a vcítění se do telátka, kterému jdou tak moc fyzicky a psychicky ublížit, že jsem byla chvilku krávou. A jsem kráva pro ostatní někdy doteď jen proto, že se pořád nesměju, nechci se s každým hned objímat (i když úspěšně mě léčí pár mých známých). Pravdou stále je, že nesnáším lidi jako celek. S každým novým člověkem, který bojuje za zvířata se mi tenhle můj postoj trochu láme, ale pořád jsem spíš vždy překvapená, když se někdo takový najde. Jsem za to hrozně ráda. Tohle píšu jen tak pro příště, až mě zase uvidíte se mračit, ve skutečnosti se tvářím hezky, fakt, před pár lety byste mě totiž za moje pohledy radči trefili jateční pistolí, abych vás neotravovala svým nihilismem a antinatalismem. #veganforanimals #vegangirl #veganwitch #bodymods #269 #branding #269life #weareall269 #antinatalism #bloodisblood #painispain #fearisfear #veganactivism #cow #holocaust

Oskar Schindler being lifted in a chair at the 25th wedding anniversary of Murray, z”l and Louise Pantirer in 1972. Murray was one of the 1,200 Jews saved by #Schindler during the #Holocaust. The Pantirers were among the first members of the American Society for Yad Vashem and their grandchildren are committed members of our #YLA. Schindler’s heroism will continue to be felt for generations!

A sobering but necessary departure from pretty travel and tablescape pictures— On our last day together in Rome, my sister Titi Chavarria Hernandez and I came across many of the stolpersteine memorials for members of Rome’s Jewish community who were deported during the Holocaust. I was planning to put together an album of the ones we photographed, but today it is being reported that the last group of plaques we saw, of the Di Consiglio family (pictured here), was dug up and stolen. We had come across these only 11 days after the Tree of Life synagogue tragedy in Pittsburgh, and we even found some in the building next to our hotel that was not near the historic Jewish center.... Feeling so sad, disgusted, and many other things regarding the hatred, antisemitism, and uncertainty facing Europe, and other places in the world.... #artinmemory #diconsiglio #endantisemitism #endhatred #stolpersteine #italia #roma #holocaust #shoah #holocaustmemorial #fondazionemuseodellashoah #trastevere #rionemonti #famigliadiconsiglio

" 'Well done', he whispers as he sets about tattooing the remaining four digits - 4 9 0 2. When he has finished, he holds on to her arm for a moment longer than necessary, looking again into her eyes. He forces a Small smile. She returns a smaller one. Her eyes, however, dance before him. Looking into them, his heart seems simultaneously to stop and begin beating for the first time, pounding, threatening to burst out of his chest. He looks down at the ground and it sways beneath him. Another piece of paper is thrust at him.
'Hurry up, Lale!' Pepan whispers urgently.
When he looks up again she is gone. "

"Arbeit macht frei". O trabalho liberta, diziam os alemães.
Quanta gente sonhou os últimos anos de vida em passar uma segunda vez por esses portões, assim como eu fiz, mas a única saída foi pelas chaminés dos crematórios das câmaras de gás. (Foto 3)
Não vou escrever muito sobre auschwitz hoje. É uma visita pesada e intensa.
Mas é algo que precisa ser visto e compartilhado.
Os últimos sobreviventes do holocausto estão com idade avançada. Quando o último sobrevivente morrer, nós seremos as únicas testemunhas do que aconteceu, e é nossa obrigação como seres humanos assimilar os fatos desse local pra evitar que isso ocorra de novo.

Exchanges of internees between the German Reich and Britain had already occurred in 1941 and 1942. On these occasions, Jews with papers for Palestine imprisoned in Germany had been released in exchange for German nationals interned in Palestine. The SS and the German Foreign Office intended to use the Bergen-Belsen prisoners to expand this exchange. However, at the end of July 1944, a mere 222 Jewish Bergen-Belsen prisoners were exchanged, even though many more prisoners, such as Werner Weinberg and his wife Luise, held papers of the same value. They were never exchanged to Palestine.

«La vår skjebne være en advarsel til deg» Dette står skrevet på monumentet i den tidligere konsentrasjonsleiren Majdanek. Som en del av dette monumentet ligger det 1300 kubikk menneskeaske til minne om de mange ofrene av Holocaust.

I dag, 10. desember er FNs menneskerettighetsdag og i dag er menneskerettighetserklæringen er 70 år. 
Så 70 år etter, har vi i dag nådd de målene vi hadde for samfunnet i 1948?, Er alle inkludert, og er vi født med lik rett til å være menneske? Nei, dessverre ikke. 
Vi har en viktig jobb og gjøre for fremtiden og generasjonene som kommer etter oss.

The 'unwritten' final chapter of Anne Frank's Diary recounts the time between Anne Frank's arrest and her death. The story is told through the testimonies of six Jewish women who survived the concentration camp hell from which Anne has never returned. Initially, renowned Dutch filmmaker Willy Lindwer filmed the documentary 'The Last Seven Months of Anne Frank' and after that decided to turn it into a book. To do so, he interviewed women who knew Anne Frank. The book is composed of the testimonies of six of these women - some who knew her before her deportation to the Nazi camp, and all of them during the last moments in Bergen-Belsen. The stories these women have to tell are similar-the treatment in the field, the way they met the Frank sisters, and the way they were all inexplicably touched by her life. The fact that they survived the extermination camp is a miracle in itself. One of the survivors even had the difficult task of confirming to Otto Frank the deaths of her daughters, Anne and Margot.

The stories these women have to tell are similar-the treatment in the field, the way they met the Frank sisters, and the way they were all inexplicably touched by her life. The fact that they survived the extermination camp is a miracle in itself. One of the survivors even had the difficult task of confirming to Otto Frank the deaths of her daughters, Anne and Margot. @foreverannefrank #annefrankshouse #annafrank #annefrankhaus #annefrankhouse #annefranksdiary #annefrank #annefrankhuis #annefrankmuseum #annefrankdiary #hetachterhuis #thediaryofayounggirl #thesecretannex #dastagebuchderannefrank #holocausto #holocaust #books #bookstagram #odiariodeannefrank @foreverannefrank

Jeg leser Philippe Sands’ bok «Tilbake til Lemberg», som #ForlagetPress utga tidligere i høst. I boka udødeliggjør Sands blant annet Miss Tilney, kvinnen som brakte Sands’ mor Ruth (som da var ett år) fra Wien til Paris, og som dermed reddet livet hennes. Uten denne heltedåden ville han selv aldri ha blitt født. «Tilbake til Lemberg» griper meg så dypt at jeg ønsker at alle skal få øynene opp for boka! Mesterlig er den! #PhilippeSands #holocaust #jødeforfølgelse #folkemord
