A gift shop?? A cafeteria?? What????? Shame on us. I can't believe what you showed me with your lens. How much more disrespect can that sacred Holy place endure. I'm sure it has to do with making money to keep the site... no, there's no excuse. Rabbi, I have tears from this short video. The very air in that place is sacred. Baruch Hashem. I don't understand.

The World has Forgotten

Yes, you are correct, a gift shop, a cafeteria, totally, and utterly unexplainable. I heard about the commerialization of this sacred ground 5 years ago. Now I see this video and am deeply,deeply sadden. The Poles have not protested, the ADL is apparently silent, which leads me to think the World does not care for this history that is self evident. The atrosities that were commited there are for me and I hope for others that have a conscience, that history will never die. As long as people will study this history and its horrors, people of good conscience will keep this history alive.

my thoughts

i know that I always try to share my thoughts with you and I hope that you can see where i'm coming from. I think that my main thought is how we should praise G-d every day for we have our country, our Israel now. I think it's very sad to see how news are dameging Israel's image and I think that we shouldn't stay quiet (write, call, protest, make them tell the truth aobut our land, our soldiers, our history...)
I know that it's a bit overused, but the phrase "united we stand" is very much what I think about.
