Holocaust Memorial Day 27 Jan 2014All of us around the world should remember those who suffered and died in the greatest act of evil ever committed in mankind in the 20th Century. There was the following Prayer found written on a piece of wrapping paper at Ravensbruck concentration camp in Nazi Germany, which is truly inspiring:

“O Lord, remember not only the men and women of goodwill but also those of ill will. But do not remember all the suffering they have inflicted upon us; remember the fruits we have bought thanks to this suffering, our comradeship, our loyalty, our humility, the courage, the generosity, the greatness of heart which has grown out of this; and when they come to judgement, let all the fruits that we have borne be their forgiveness.” Amen.

May all those who lost their lives never be forgotten as the world is a poorer place without them.
