My blogging friend Lauren Hairston has been doing a series of posts, Life This Week, in which she links back to articles in Life magazine for what would have been the current week in 1938. Her most recent post in this series (the April 18, 1938 issue) linked to an article on Passover and the situation of the Jews in Europe.
I think you will find this article as fascinating, chilling, and thought provoking as I did.
Also worth looking at: The OU has posted a series of photographs from Shem Olam, an Israel-based organization dedicated to researching and recording Jewish life during the Holocaust.
“This year, the central theme of the ceremony will be Fragments of Memory: The Faces Behind the Documents, Artifacts and Photographs, a campaign launched by the Holocaust museum aimed at collecting and preserving documents so that future generations may learn about the genocide of the Jewish people by the Nazis from first-hand sources.”
Go to Yad Vashem’s website for more information.
One more: take a look at this wonderful post from Miriyummy.
