Thanks for your video report

Thanks for your video report on your trip to Treblinka. As a gentile, I appreciate learning more and more about the perspective of the Jewish population when they visit these memorials. I am a professor that has taken many students to Auschwitz, but they have always been gentile students - some from backgrounds where they questioned even the existence of such places. So when I see things like your video, or when Elie Weisel visited Auschwitz (and took Oprah through it), it makes it easier for me to teach how important it is that we "Never Forget."Thanks again - your video piece is very well done.

Thank you

Thank for a making us remember and thank you for not forgetting present problems. I just was reading very sad news from the war, our children are dieing and could not cry (it was too much for me). Now I can... I just hope you will bring us some ideas, some plans, because I do consider you one of the biggest influences in my spiritual growth.I hope that soon you will be able to go back to your regular lectures and it is very hard to wait to the end of the war. We all love our children, may G-d bring our soldiers safe home, may peace be in Israel.

lost my family there

my great grampa's family,a.h.,were killed in treblinka. from a little shetl called mordy. i tried, but could not watch the video. i don't think i could ever go to any of those places in poland or germany. nobody, nobody on earth ever in time, from any place could imagine what happened there. no other group of people ever, ever suffered what the jewish people suffered in a place like this. it is beyond words, it is beyond feeling, it is beyond everything. know one thing: that every one of those precious souls is up in the highest level of heaven. and they are praying for israel. that is one reason, as elie weisel said, that we won in '48,'56,'67,72 and why we will win now.if there are any people of other religions who read this comment, do us all one big favor: instead of telling us how bad you feel, which we do appreciate, take the next, important and necessary step. promise that you will tell your co-religionists to stop once and for all trying to "convert" the jewish people and recognize that we are on earth for a good reason. respect that as you would respect G-d, who put us here.may the memory of my family be for a blessing. G-d bless israel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Keep the Videos Coming - We NEED To Remember Especially NOW

Please, please, keep those videos coming and send them out as far and wide in the Jewish communities of the world as you can. We NEED to see this up close and in our faces right now, so that we all remember what is in store for us at the hands of those who are even NOW plotting our total destruction. We need to KNOW that it CAN happen to us, just like those in the 1930's and 1940's didn't think it could happen, so do we today in our complacency and avoidance of the issue. Bring it to us to SEE, and we will remember and stand up. Thank you so much Rabbi Salomon, you are and may you continue to be a blessing for us all.

Rabbi Salomon, this video was very moving and you described the whole thing well and told an amazing story about a woman and her child meeting after she left treblinka.

I keep my mouth shut, and my eyes weep

I see you and I hear you and my hard beats faster and I weep. Then, when all that happened, I was a part of those murdereous people, althoug a child. I can feel as ashamed as I want to I can never shake that off. Now I belong to "us", the Jewish people. Can one imagine, what Hashem did to me?How great is His love? Baruch Hu!I can not understand, what happened in Treblinka (still was a child), becauseit was so undescribable bad. But I even less understand His Chessed when it comes to Human beings like me. MayIsrael be victorious over Hamas and Hesbolla, and all its enemies. And may we accomplish in life, what He wants us to accomplish.I feel with you and am looking forward to your next films.- Your two books I own. - Thank you for writing them and thank you for going to those terrible and sad places. Shalom.

I think you should call this series, "Something to cry about."
