Holocaust is not over…


By Zanna Linskaia

77 years past from the time of Nuremberg trials over 22 Nazi war

criminals, accused of the genocide of 6 million European Jews by

Nazi Germany between 1941 and 1945. 27 January was chosen by UN

to commemorate   the date that Auschwitz concentration camp was

liberated by the Red Army in 1945 and to remember all victims of

Holocaust.

How many years, decades or millenniums should past, that mankind

could stop to hate and kill Jews? Every day we read, watch and have

news about attacks on synagogues, Jewish schools or our people

and children - injured, stabbed, beaten or killed by terrorists and

ordinary anti-Semites. In the modern UK, France, Germany, America,

Canada, Russia, Poland, Hungary, and even in Israel the level of anti-

Semitism in last few years is higher than ever…

French president E. Macron admits:

“Our country, and for that matter all of Europe and most Western

democracies, seems to be facing a resurgence of anti-Semitism

unseen since World War II.”

Example of it - the story of Sarah Halimi, an Orthodox Jewish woman

in her sixties, who died after being pushed out of the window of her

Paris flat by neighbor Kobili Traoré, who shouted "Allahu Akbar!"

The verdict by the French Court ruled, that murderer will not face any

trial because he was a heavy pot smoker. Is it not outrageous?

On International Memorial Day of Holocaust the prime ministers,

presidents, politicians, TV hosts and anchors are regularly giving the

brilliant speeches that “Never again”…But for us, Jews, Holocaust is

not over…
