Candles – 35

May 6, 2011

These candles were lit at a Yom Hashoa program to remember the 6 million Jews and 5 million other people who died in the Holocaust. In Judaism one of the traditions that I really like is the Yarzheit candle. It is lit on the anniversary of a loved one’s death and burns for 24 hours. I think it is a wonderful way to remember one’s loved ones. It gives me comfort.

    This and yesterday’s images, as well as the tradition, are just wonderful. I agree….we must NEVER forget.
    I have a post on my last year’s blog that fits in with these two postings. The link is if you’d like to check it out.

      I read the posting from last year’s blog. That must have been an amazing experience. Thank you for pointing it out.
      I would hope that Charles Roman is able to participate in an Adopt-a-Survivor program so that his story will live on.

    The golden glow of the candles lit to remember all those who lost their lives during the Holocaust is a beautiful tradition. We will never forget . . .
