"To save one life is as if you have saved the world"

the Talmud

 

 

 

"They came for the communists, and I did not speak up because I wasn't a communist;

They came for the socialists, and I did not speak up because I was not a socialist;

They came for the union leaders, and I did not speak up because I wasn't a union leader;

They came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak up for me."

 

Martin Niemoller, 1892-1984

An overview of Krema IV in Auschwitz. The gas chambers are in the back; in the foreground, the morgue and the crematorium.

One of the cremation pits used to burn the victims of the gas chambers in Auschwitz. These "burning pits" were used mainly in the summer of 1944, when the extermination was going at such a rate that the furnaces couldn't handle the number of corpses. From 1933 to 1945 the Nazis murdered 6,000,000 Jews and millions of others. This tragedy, called the Holocaust, represents the world's most overwhelming example of intolerance.

God help the outcasts, hungry from birth. Show them the mercy they don't find on earth. The lost and forgotten, they look to You still. God help the outcasts, or nobody will.
