May 5: From Death to Life

– Holocaust Memorial Day

Survivors and soldiers who liberated the “camps” agree that neither words nor pictures can communicate the horror and the unfathomable hatred of man against man.

But the story doesn’t end there.

As we remember those who died, we must also remember those who gave their lives to comfort them even in the midst of the concentration camps. There is a place of honor given to these whom Israel calls, “The Righteous Gentiles.”

And of course, we remember those who risked their own lives to save them. Even in the midst of the darkness God was working, bringing the dry bones to life.

Ezekiel 37:4-6

Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord!

Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live.

I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.”

Roll Call at Buchenwald Concentration Camp...those who couldn't stand (sometimes in freezing temperatures for hours) were sent immediately to their death.
