As a good buddy of mine, TINSC, once told me, Israel is the most important Holocaust museum in the world.
So I’m glad that the JPost chose to include the photograph (below) of Jews holding the Israeli flag at the gate of Auschwitz, it’s highly symbolic, and therefore, it’s something that the Leftist-Islamic nexus would have you ignore.
I would like to offer some advice on this solemn day of remembrance of the liberation of Auschwitz, where Jews (and a minority of others) were slaughtered by German National Socialism and its supporters.
Do not allow politicians and the social (self anointed elite) to use this occasion as a means to dust off their leftist credentials and flaunt their supposed humanitarianism, crying crocodile tears for all of the dead Jews murdered by the fascists, if they do not support, solidly, the Jews that are alive in Jewish state of Israel.
Politicians (including their political parties and NGO’s) who weep on such days as these commemorating the memory of those Jews murdered in the European butcher shop of the Holocaust, and then spend the rest of the 364 days of the year trashing Israel, should be regarded as enemies of the Jewish people and of Israel.
World marks 70 years since Auschwitz’s liberation

Krakow- Holocaust survivors from around the world concentrated in the Polish city of Krakow on Monday in anticipation of a ceremony marking the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp in nearby Oswiecim, in what will possibly be the last such gathering of the rapidly aging former prisoners.
Survivors, journalists and heads of state are slated to make their way to what survivor Mordechai Ronen called “one of the biggest cemeteries in the world.”
“I came to say a prayer for my father, mother and two sisters who went to the crematorium without being able to say good-bye,” he told The Jerusalem Post, his shoulders heaving as he sobbed.
Ronen said he returned to Auschwitz to tell the world what happened here and that while he hopes that there will never be a recurrence, “today, unfortunately, there are those who denied it even happened.”
His ability to relate his story, however, makes him a victor, Ronen added.
The theme of remembrance and the responsibility to maintain a chain of memory was a major leitmotif Monday evening, as speaker after speaker addressed the gathered survivors at a hotel in downtown Krakow. The frailty of the returnees was underscored by the presence of medical teams circulating throughout the event.
“You are witnesses. You serve as our eyes and memory to what happened here,” said World Jewish Congress president Ronald Lauder.
