The Holocaust Remembrance Day

Yesterday, April 11th, was The Holocaust Remembrance Day.  I watched the movie, "Anne Frank", last night, and was reminded of the horrible atrocities. Our prayers continue to go out to the survivors, and their loved ones-- lost-- but not forgotten. Here is a YouTube about the woman, Miep Gies, who died recently, at age 100, who helped the Frank's hide from the Nazi's. www.youtube.com/watch  The video also reviews the events leading up to Anne Frank's death, and about her diary.  I have been to Holland, and walked through the Annex, where the Frank's and their friends, hid.   I will never forget it.  There was a long line tourists, waiting to enter the Annex.  Noone said a word - -you could hear a pin drop.   Over one million and a half children died during the Holocaust.    There were many brave people, like Miep Gies, who risked their lives to save the Jews.  A Good Samaritan, doing an unimaginable task.
