It's international holocaust victim rememberance day. So let's remember all the Jews that lost their lives in this terrible event and all the Jews that lost families and homes and suffered otherwise because of it.
This is the holocaust memorial in Berlin for those of you who haven't seen it. It was made to be interactive and the ground gets lower the more you go, making the stones go higher. It's supposed to show to show that the event too is not just simple like when you look at the surface, but the roots go deeper the more you unpack it. Signs need to be recognized early and we need to look at our society and ourselves for these problems.
We owe this not just to all Jews who had to go through this horrible time, but to all other Jews who are alive today and still suffer consequences, that we could never understand all pain about, decades later. You should be allowed to not live in fear and live as yourselves. And the rest of us has to make sure that we contribute to a society in which this is possible. Listen to Jewish voices and respect them.
Edit: This also applies to other groups that the nazis were targeting, like Romani and disabled people. There are many posts talking more about who has been targeted in germany at the time and these people are all more knowledgable than I am!
