The holocaust has been written about in novels and non-fiction books ad nauseum, documented in historical tomes as well as magazines and website, featured more than any other historical event in popular movies and documentaries, and yes, covered all the time by individuals tweeting about holocaust memorial day and attributing wonderful things to their survivor grandparents. Anyone who goes to Jewish schools and community events is constantly reminded about the holocaust and told of the atrocities. For Jewish people and others, trips to Washington, DC and Israel are not complete without visits to the comprehensive holocaust museums. Countless people have… Read more »

these photos themselves just ignited a Spark in me that brought on tears – sometimes only a Moment of Silence, a moment of music or a certain photo can do that to people, motivating us to want to do something – to find preventative actions so NEVER AGAIN, to learn more, teach others, and especially to give more attention and love, interest and helpfulness to survivors of the holocaust where ever we merit to encounter them. BRAVO and Kudos and blessings to everyone who made the sacrifices, and took the risks to work on and contribute to this groundbreaking project!… Read more »

no grass

According to survivors, there was no grass at the concentration camps – just dirt. Any vegetation that existed was eaten or destroyed before it could grow.

Sorry to be mean.
I met a couple who survived the Holocaust while I worked at Palm Gardens Nursing Home.
They won’t talk or read about it at all. Why mull over tragedy and misery?

ribbons in hair,fur coats-all matted and dirty

yes-many had ribbons and jewelry and fancy hats and fur coats-it goes without saying that they were not so neat by the time they got off of the cattle cars but most didnt know that they were meeting their death they did dress nicely-they had dignity and wanted to look their best for wherever they were going

RIBBONS -9

RIBBONS -9

Yes, the girls wore ribbons and tried to be presentable on their way to “the getto”. THEY WERE TRICKED! Fooled, told they were re-locating because of work. Only some of their so called false community leaders knew the truth. If our smart people knew, do you think that they really would have left without a fight? The greatest fear the nazis -may they be destroyed forever -had was that the Jews would find out where they were really going. Wonder what the RAINBOW song is like?

That’s my sons school in long island!!! It looks like a very powerful and meaningful project. It’s great to see all the school children from different communities working together for a special cause. I look forward to seeing what this is.

You are right in saying that there is much readily available information about the holocaust available within jewish communities. This is not true for non-jews. I am a gioress and growing up I thought the holocaust was ancient history. My grandparents were young children when ww2 was being fought and so they have little memory of that era. My grandmother says that it was the best time of her life because she was moved to the country for the duration of the war. In school we were only taught about the pacific war in ww2. The holocaust was part of… Read more »

I promise you that the same non-Jewish children and people that do not take the time to educate themselves about the holocaust (in the same way most people, including Jews, don’t bother learning about genocides that are occurring as we type) will not be watching this music video.

not to make such generalizations..hope it will be so beautifully, touching and artistically done that even those deniers, and questioners won’t mind unblocking their minds for a few minutes to watch and listen. Afterwards, if they don’t know what hit their soul, they shall inquire further.

Those false ghetto community leaders were paid off and yet met the same fate as those they betrayed and persuaded to pack and leave quickly to work without making any commotion. Above all they lacked fear of G-d and ahavas Yisroel. The Jews who were leaving the ghettos continued to be scared and confused, but they had hopes for improved conditions where they were told they were going to, so they took along and wore their favorites and tried to dress and look nicely amongst their peers.

Like #28, I attended secular (public) schools with children from a broad spectrum of religious faiths and cultural backgrounds, and we did a substantial study of the Holocaust as part of a mandatory middle school curriculum. It wasn’t until I travelled extensively across America as an adult that I realized just how lucky I was to have grown up in a state where the public school system was succeeding- too often it fails so many children on so many levels. I am proud to be from a town where every child read The Diary of Anne Frank and imagined themselves… Read more »

Crown Heights school children do cover American history in the school system as mandated by nys core curriculum requirements. They do study about slavery in the United States and are bothered by it no less than public school kids in Crown Heights are bothered by the holocaust- in both cases commensurate with how much stress the teacher puts on it.

I am sitting next to a young man who attended Olei Torah for fifteen years and his class didn’t learn ANY American history whatsoever. As the ENTIRE CLASS was never taught to read in English (New York State curriculum be darned,) he was poorly equipped to seek out this information on his own. Maybe things were different ten years ago. But it is naive to deny that a large number of young Lubavitchers, particularly boys, have been educated in a manner that reinforces social isolation. To be fair, I am sure that some parents make a genuine and concerted effort… Read more »
