God's hand in providing the oil for the Jews of Bergen Belsen.

Again, I find myself asking (in light of those who claim that it was God's hand in providing oil for lighting the Hanukkah candle for the Jews of Bergen Belsen) why couldn't the Almighty be more magnanimous and considerate and rather save the many Jews from certain death at the hands of the Germans?

Shoah service

We may well include this in our annual Shoah service.
Super story from such a horrendous time.

Incredible story!

To me, these types of stories are more than too 'coincidental'. These stories prove the hidden hand of Hashem.

Hope from above comes daily like it did to those imprisoned in this terrible place. It will also tell us that never again will this be the situation . Not here or anywhere!
