Holocaust Remembrance Day

"Between 1933 and 1945, millions of European Jews were persecuted and killed during a time known as the “Holocaust.” Today is a day of remembrance.

Nobel Prize winning author and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel said: “There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.”

The Bible addresses injustice and oppression in hundreds of passages throughout its pages.

In Isaiah 1:17 we read: “Learn to do good; seek justice, rebuke the oppressor, defend the fatherless, plead for the widow.”

And Isaiah 58:5 says: “Is this not the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke?”

Read the Bible—engage with the many themes of this Book of books!"
