Yom HaShoah torch bearers

On Wednesday night, the six Holocaust survivors pictured at top left will light torches in memory of the six million Jews who were murdered in the Holocaust (photo from JPost web page).

You can read their stories here.

Note that all six of them were re-settled in Israel, do not claim to be 'refugees' sixty years later and are not the beneficiaries of international largesse through UNRWA or anything like it. There is no UNRWA for Jews.

And all of them picked up the pieces of their shattered lives and made successful, productive lives for themselves. They chose to actually LIVE rather than spend their lives complaining about the (very real) atrocities they suffered and trying to take revenge on the Germans with suicide bombings and rockets. They all became productive members of society who contributed a lot to this country.

I just saw these people and their stories on the ceremony on TV. Very moving.
