Thanks, Bubble. I hadn't heard about her. Such a sad, sad story.

I would like to mention Eva Heyman a little Hungarian girl who at the age of 13 was sent to a concentration camp and brutally tortured murdered and thrown out like garbage by a Nazi doctor.


In May 2019, a series of short videos that illustrate her story was uploaded to Instagram in the style that characterizes the media and under the title Eva Stories. The videos attracted worldwide interest and over a million looks. The idea was to relate to the young people of today's generation with the media tools they have.

You guys may be interested in looking at this video under her name and also her story under her name in Wiki - she also started a diary like Anne Frank.

We must never forget the atrocities committed to the Jewish people and other minority groups.

There is and has always been evil in the world. I am so grateful for the life I have been blessed with.

Sadly Robin genocide still happens to this day in other countries around the world I do not need to list them they are on going all the time. Man (and women) Needs to adjust to be humaine.

Fumiko Ishioka was a Japanese translator born in 1970 who thought Japanese children should know about the Holocaust and the rest is history. She is the reason Hana is known and remembered. :-)

redina1

Thanks for visiting and for the interesting information. I didn't know anyone from Japan was involved like that.

There is a saying, " Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it!" We can't ever forget or let it happen again !!!! Thanks Redina.
There is even a small Holocaust storefront museum in Tokyo started by Ishioka to tell the story of Hana Brady -a 13 year old gas chamber victim, and a book Hana's Suitcase. Also there is a Japanese hero who was a Consulate Diplomat in Lithuania who saved thousands of escaping Jews in the course of a few weeks by writing them transit visas. I collect books on the holocaust.

Thank you, redina1 for this informative puzzle. I followed your link, and what I found fascinating, was that the word genocide, as we know it in modern times, didn’t even exist until 1944! That this evil was so pervasive so retched that all of humanity, all of human existence until then had no need of such a word is remarkable to me.
It is tragic and fascinating to see the faces and lives of the real people affected by the monsters who celebrated this evil.
I just watched the movie “Conspiracy” again last night, and it was almost unbelievable that Jewish people were referred to and talked about in the way the leaders of the Third Reich did. I write, “almost unbelievable” because we know that it really did happen.

I would just like to say as I have so many times that I grew up with Jews and Jamaicans as A child after WW II and loved both of them. Remember Stalin the Russian killed millions of his peoples.

Bubble

You're absolutely right PW - seems a lot of younger people are questioning it and apparently its been removed from some books etc. (❀ᴗ❀)

I am concerned that the present generation will ignore, forget, or doubt that the Holocaust ever happened.

I'm putting in a pitch for @captaindeulofeu who posted a puzzle at the same time I posted this one. It is a simple painting of the Israeli flag, and at one point, it was right beside this one. This primitive little painting reflects the sadness all the people went through. I think it is worthy of more than the 4 solves it has now.

redina1

I appreciate you all and hope that those who haven't commented checked out the Museum's site.

Bubble

Robin, I'm happy to see everyone commenting here - this brings people together (❀ᴗ❀)

Dear Redina - thank you for posting this memorable puzzle and honouring this brave woman and her family and all the millions lost so tragically in the holocaust ♥♥♥♥

redina1

Thank you, Returner. I argued with myself awhile about posting, but didn't feel right to not post it. Thanks for your encouragement.

Returner

Thank you for posting this, Redina. It is endlessly heartbreaking.

redina1

Thanks, MM and KARLS. I just thought it would be good to remind people that it really happened and Rena's story was so sad. Thanks so much for commenting. :)

KARLS

I DIDN'T KNOW THERE WAS A HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM IN WASHINGTON. I WILL VISIT THE WEBSITE.

Thanks Bubble. The world turned it's head for a long time before anything was done.

Bubble

I also thank you Redina for posting this.
Some people just don't want to see or hear anything, even if the evidence is right in front of them. We should never forget the lives lost and the heroes who helped the save the Jewish people and many other ethnicities during the second world war.
Ellen said it, Man's Inhumanity to Man - the cruellest species on on Earth.

redina1

That is one of the reasons I wanted to post this.

PutterDutt

Man's inhumanity to man. And yet some people refuse to believe that that ever really happened.

redina1

Thanks, Ellen. Her parents went directly to the gas chamber. She was in a camp with her three brothers, and several weeks after she asked permission to see them, they were all killed.

PutterDutt

Fascinating. Thanks, redina!
