Holocaust survivors singing Hatikvah

The Holocaust

 

 Personally I find this difficult, but because it is also part of our history, of the trauma's that are sometimes passed on through generations, which often never close the wounds completely, for many is still not closed, something that goes on in the background is still present. Also for us, for my grandmother, who saw both her parents together with her sister for the last time after they had found two families in a other European country  who wanted to give my grandmother and her sister's shelter and later had them go into hiding in a safer place, that my great grandparents did everything they could to get their children into safety and were themselves murdered for the simple reason that they were Jewish and that still leaves a void and pain! There were other children, some of which I know also ended up in Concentration camps. We have no relatives who have returned unfortunately. For privacy and privacy reasons and out of respect for the wishes of part of my family, I have promised to post no names, no places and no photos.
