Slideshow of pictures I took at Auschwitz and Birkenau.
Yesterday was International Holocaust Remembrance Day. It was designated by the United Nations in 2005. As I thought about this day and what it signifies, I couldn’t help but think about our recent visit to Auschwitz and Birkenau.
The step-by-step progression they used to break the people physically and mentally was so brutal. Starvation, brutality, exhaustion, and horrible living conditions were all used to make the people unable to resist in any way. Seeing these condition in the month of December provided additional impact for me. I do not tolerate cold weather well, and being at the death camps in winter with proper clothing but still being cold really overwhelmed me with just what the people must have suffered. It was a life-changing experience and I would recommend that anyone who is able should make the trip there.
I would really encourage each of us to take some steps to further educate ourselves on this time in history. Not only is it important to never forget and to have answers to those who deny, but the circumstances leading up to this catastrophe are repeating themselves and we can be prepared. When I say be prepared, I do not mean to prevent, because I do not think that will be possible. We read in the Bible about a time coming for the Jewish people which will be the worst they have ever endured.
But we are not to be afraid!
“Be not afraid, for with thee I am, Look not around, for I am thy God, I have strengthened thee, Yea, I have helped thee, yea, I upheld thee, With the right hand of My righteousness.
Isaiah 41:10 (Young’s Literal Translation)
If you haven’t done so yet, I would encourage you to order Baruch’s e-book entitled 1335kingdom. It gives a concise overview of the End Times and I think you would find it very helpful. It can be found on the website 1335kingdom.com. It is only $1.50.
