It is with an extraordinarily heavy heart that I look forward while reflecting back on this terrible, horrible year. Events so extraordinary and frightening, one cannot believe one’s eyes. But we must. On this erev Pesash (eve of Passover), the US president threatens Israel and Trump’s Middle East peace. Praying the forces of good prevail.
This could make a stone cry. But not our enemies in the White House, the EU, and Iran. Forgiving people, they’ve forgiven themselves for what they’ve done, or denied ever doing it. The slate is clean and it’s time to turn against the Jews again. The Seder warns us “In every generation they rise up to destroy us.” That’s what’s happening now, and only Israel stands in their way. So they attack us in Jerusalem, knowing that if our stronghold falls the rest will easily be overrun. Every Jew, Israeli and decent gentile must understand that simple fact. It’s happening before our very eyes, and if we ignore it, or abet it, like last time, there will be Hell to pay.
SAVED FROM SCRAPS, MUSIC FROM THE CAMPS Telegraph
…… I will gather with my family to celebrate and commemorate the Exodus of the Jews from slavery in Egypt to Israel our ancient nation and the locus of the faith that sustained our brethren through millennia of dispersion and persecution and harassment and forced conversions and genocide.
At our seder we close with a remembrance of Passover in the Warsaw ghetto in April 1943. Hungry, cold and wretched Jews rose up against the Nazis and with no military training, using stolen guns, iron rods, knives and crafted explosives they held off the Nazis for twenty eight days.
The resistance commenced with the ominous statement: “Our hour has come with no hope of rescue.” As the SS troops led by Gruppenfuhrer Jurgen Stoop rushed into the ghetto on the morning of April 19th which coincided with the first day of Passover, the bombs, grenades and makeshift explosives so carefully hidden for months, ambushed the Nazi troops, set tanks afire and killed and wounded over 200 Nazis.
Battles continued, home made bombs were detonated under Nazi troop columns, trucks carrying Nazi soldiers were torched and the Nazis retreated and called for reinforcements. Within weeks ammunition was almost used up and the Nazis began their destruction of the ghetto…building after building…reducing all to rubble.
On May 16th, 1943- Gruppenfuhrer Jurgen Stoop announced “180 Jews, bandits, and subhumans were destroyed. Tbe Jewisb quarter of Warsaw is no more!”
However, the damage to Nazi prestige was enormous and the few survivors that escaped the ghetto inspired other rebellions by the Jews.
Elie Weisel has written: “Where did they draw the strength, the knowledge, to go out in battle against the most awesome army in Europe?….. There are limits to human endurance. One must break at last” He continues: “The ghetto, half-a-million souls, for the most part did not become a jungle. Quite the contrary; people tried to help each other.” “One must marvel even more at the fighters and couriers. Instead of falling into despair, they found reasons and strength to help others.”
