  • A ella seguramente la reconozcas, ¿pero la habías imaginado en colores? 🎨
Todos conocemos a Ana Frank por su trágico destino en Bergen-Belsen, pero fue una niña alegre, llena de vida y color. No hace falta más que leer este fragmento de su diario:
«¡Qué maravilloso es que nadie tenga que esperar un instante antes de comenzar a mejorar el mundo!» 🙌🏽
Tomemos de Ana sus ganas de impactar positivamente en los demás. No seamos indiferentes a las situaciones que nos parecen injustas. ¡Hagamos nosotros también la diferencia! 💪🏼

Zaterdag, 1 April 1944
“Lieve Kitty,
En toch is alles nog zo moeilijk, je weet zeker wel wat ik bedoel, hé? Ik verlang zo ontzettend naar een kus, de kus die zo lang uitblijft. Zou hij mij aldoor nog als een kameraad beschouwen? Ben ik dan niet méér?
Jij weet en ik weet, dat ik sterk ben, dat ik de meeste lasten wel alleen kan dragen. Ik ben het nooit gewend geweest mijn lasten met iemand te delen, aan mijn moeder heb ik me nooit vastgeklemd, maar nu zou ik zo graag eens mijn hoofd tegen zijn schouder leggen en alleen maar rustig zijn.
Ik kan niet, kan nooit de droom van Peters wang vergeten, toen alles, alles zo goed was! Zou hij niet ook daarnaar verlangen? Zou hij alleen maar te verlegen zijn om zijn liefde te bekennen? Waarom wil hij mij zo vaak bij zich hebben? O, waarom spreekt hij niet?
Laat me ophouden, laat me rustig zijn, ik zal me wel sterk houden en met wat geduld zal dat andere ook wel komen, maar ... en dat is het erge, het ziet er zo erg naar uit of ik hem naloop, altijd moet ik naar boven, niet hij gaat naar mij.
Maar dat ligt aan de kamers en hij begrijpt dat bezwaar wel. O ja, hij zal wel meer begrijpen.
Je Anne.”

  • 19 Nissan - Rabbi Menachem Ziemba (1883–1943)

R' Ziemba was born in Warsaw, in 1883. His father, R' Elazar, died while Menachem was still a young boy. He was brought up by his grandfather, a Gerrer chasid.

As R' Ziemba grew up in Warsaw, he gained a reputation as a formidable Torah scholar and a great genius.

In 1935 he was appointed to the Warsaw Rabbinate, becoming one of the foremost spokesmen for Orthodox Jewry in Poland. R' Ziemba became a Halachic decisor of great importance, answering questions from around the world.

In the Warsaw Ghetto, after the German invasion of Poland, R' Ziemba was a source of hope, optimism and inspiration. He actively supported the Ghetto underground, and helped them obtain ammunition.

R' Menachem Ziemba was killed in the Warsaw Ghetto, on the 19th of Nissan 1943. After the war, his body was brought to Israel and was laid to rest on Har HaMenuchos in Jerusalem.

Is #trumpsamerica a #democraticrepublic or a #dictatorship where he is above the law? Where he is above the checks and balances that make this country what it is? He is racist, sexist, scapegoats minorities, villainizes the media when its against him and spews propaganda via outlets that support him and via his social media, incites hate, division, and fear to gain power and control. Remind you of anyone?? #Jews dont have horns. #Blackpeople arent lazy. #Immigrants arent rapists murderers and criminals. He's a money launderer. Every time he spends tax payer dollars on his golf courses those tax dollars go into his bank account and that will in fact get him incarcerated and he knows it. #openyoureyes Dont forget #history dont allow another #holocaust. This #totalitarian behaviour and hate mongering should have been ended right when it started. #lovetrumpshate #whitehouse needs to act. The government works for THE AMERICAN PEOPLE and government officials need to remember that and do their jobs and fight for us like @elizabethwarren does. Like @ocasio2018 does. Like @pete.buttigieg does, and so many others amazing politicians, too numerous to list, who put the welfare Of the country FIRST unlike potus. And dont go thinking i'm a liberal or democrat or a conservative or a republican. I dont vote by party i vote by policy and so should every voter in this country.

  • This post is facts about the Holocaust. I wanted to do this because I found some facts that I, myself didn't even know while researching for this post so I want to share it with all of you whether you already knew all of these facts or not and spread some information so no one is misinformed. I know this post might be quite ‘heavy’ (Is that how you say it in English?) but here where I live, in The Netherlands ‘bevrijdingsdag’ is coming up (Liberation day) and I thought it was the right time. When that time comes, I will also post a special post about Dutch Jews during the Holocaust but yeah, for now I hope you learned something from this post!

  • Foram seis horas visitando os campos de concentração de Auschwitz. Impossível estar ali e não imaginar a vida no campo, não lembrar de cenas de documentários ou de testemunhos de sobreviventes, ainda assim, nossa imaginação não se aproxima com a realidade do que houve. A história está escancarada pra gente nunca esquecer, mas ainda assim há quem negue o holocausto e há quem diga que é possível perdoar. Não, não é!

Foto 1 entrada do campo de Auschwitz 1 a placa diz "O trabalho liberta"
Foto 2 pijamas que eles recebiam quando chegavam ao campo 
Foto 3 latinhas do gás usado na câmara
Foto 4 à 8 pertences dos prisioneiros, dentre eles quase duas toneladas de cabelos femininos usados pela indústria na fabricação de tecido. Não há roupas porque as de melhor qualidade eram higienizadas e enviadas para a Alemanha.
Foto 9 câmara de gás. Os recém-chegados considerados ináptos para o trabalho eram mandados direto para a câmara (mulheres grávidas, crianças, doentes, deficientes e idosos) diziam-lhes que seriam mandados para o trabalho, mas antes precisariam passar pelo banho. Os soldados da SS abriam as latas de gás e despejavam os grãos de cianeto, que sob influência da temperatura ocorria a liberação do gás, sufocando quem estava ali, em seguida eles eram cremados no crematório ao lado, foto 10.

  • Durschganglager Westerbork, one of the 3 camps (with Vught and Amersfoort) from where people were deported in the Netherlands. Westerbork was the largest and it’s also the one from where Anne Frank was deported. There is not much left over. The house of the last Commandant and a small museum with interesting items. Like the sign for passengers carriage. Direction Auschwitz, and it gives the impression trains are also riding back.... #westerbork #kampwesterbork #annefrank #holocaust #shoah #auschwitz #nowayback #remember #history

  • The #Armenian #Genocide , also known as the Armenian #Holocaust, was the #Ottoman government's systematic extermination of 1.5 million Armenians. The starting date is conventionally held to be 24 April 1915, the day that Ottoman authorities rounded up, #arrested, and #deported Armenian intellectuals and community leaders, the majority of whom were eventually #murdered.

The genocide was carried out during and after #WWI. Driven forward by #military escorts, the deportees were #deprived of food and water and subjected to periodic #robbery, #rape, and #massacre.

#Turkey denies the word genocide is an accurate term for these #crimes, but has been faced with repeated calls to recognize them as genocide.

The Armenian Genocide #memorial complex, is Armenia's official memorial dedicated to the #victims of the Armenian Genocide, built in 1967 on the hill of #Tsitsernakaberd  Every year on April 24—the Armenian Genocide #Remembrance Day— thousands of Armenians gather at the memorial to commemorate the victims of the genocide. They lay fresh flowers out of #respect for all the people who died in the Armenian genocide.

  • Elisabeth Hesselblad, born June 4, 1870, Fåglavik, Västergötland. Saint. Nurse and nun. From a Protestant burghers background. Emigrated to the United States in 1888. Worked as a registered nurse on the American east coast and studied to become a doctor. Converted to the Catholic faith in 1902. Had a divine revelation during a pilgrimage to Rome in 1906 and set out to revitalise the Bridgettine Order, originally founded by Saint Bridget of Sweden in 14th century. Re-established the order in Sweden with a convent on Djursholm outside of Stockholm in 1923. Saved hundreds of Italian Jews from the Holocaust during WW2 by giving them shelter at the main Bridgettine convent in Rome claiming that the area stood under Swedish and not Italian jurisdiction. Bestowed the honorific Righteous Among the Nations by the state of Israel. Oversaw the expansion of her new branch of the Bridgettines all over the globe. Died April 24, 1957, Rome. Buried at Casa di Santa Brigida, Rome. Canonised by Pope Francis on June 5, 2016, hereby becoming the second Swede ever officially declared a saint within the Catholic Church.  #olddeadswedes #swedes #swede #sweden #swedish #scandinavia #scandinavian #nordic #europe #history #swedishhistory #heritage #culture #portrait #famous #onthisday #saint #christian #christianity #catholicism #nun #bridgettine #holocaust #humanitarian #elisabethhesselblad

  • April 24 marks the beginning of what became known as the #ArmenianGenocide. 104 years ago, the #Ottoman authorities rounded up and arrested 235 to 270 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders, majority of whom were eventually murdered. The genocide was carried out during and after World War I. The #genocide began by the mass killing of the able-bodied male population through massacre, subjection of army conscripts and forced labour, followed by the deportation of women, children, the elderly, and the infirm on death marches leading to the Syrian Desert. 
The Armenian Genocide is acknowledged to have been one of the first modern genocides and is the second most-studied case of genocide after the #Holocaust.

👋 Hello everyone! Fabulous writer friend @julie_embleton ❤️ tagged me for an #authorselfie I’m not big on selfies, but I love our writing community, so here you go! Without you, my writing journey would not be the same. 🙏 You inspire and support me daily, and I appreciate that and you all so very much. Here are some facts about me that you may not know.
.
I’m Italian Canadian, 🇮🇹 raised in Canada and have been living in a quaint beach community in Los Angeles, California for the past five years. I grew up spending many summers in Italy with my family and lived in Spain for several years. I love Spanish culture and practice my Spanish every chance I get.
.
For the past twenty years, Graphic Design has been my trade. My other passions are writing, painting, and singing. I’ve written and recorded a few songs which live on Soundcloud and Youtube. I also sang in community musical theater many years ago—what a great feeling! 🎤🎶
.
I live a ten-minute walk to the ocean and feel blessed I can walk the most beautiful stretch of beach right in my back yard.☀️🌊🌴
.
This year I’m pouring my heart and soul into writing my first book about my mother’s life—an epic family saga driven by the power of love in the shadow of war and survival. Love. Resilience. Legacy. These are the lessons my mother taught me in her struggles through poverty and the horrors of World War II. You can read more about her epic story in my bio link.✍️📚
.
Two of my uncles died fighting in the war—One on the Russian front and one died at the hands of the Nazis, in a concentration camp, which I visited last year in Germany. Their tragic death is another reason for my book. I want to give them a voice and a second chance at life through my words, and write my family's lives forward, so they are never forgotten, and so their spirit can be felt. #neverforget #holocaust 💜
.
My beloved mother is soon to be 84 years old. It is my wish to have this book completed this year, printed, and in her hands so she can read it with pride, know her life had meaning, and understand what an incredible inspiration she is to so many.❤️

Getting in on the tag team, I’m tagging: @danaterrystories @juliablakeauthor

    I live a ten-minute walk to the ocean and feel blessed I can walk the most beautiful stretch of beach right in my back yard.☀️🌊🌴

    This year I’m pouring my heart and soul into writing my first book about my mother’s life—an epic family saga driven by the power of love in the shadow of war and survival. Love. Resilience. Legacy. These are the lessons my mother taught me in her struggles through poverty and the horrors of World War II. You can read more about her epic story in my bio link.✍️📚
    .
    Two of my uncles died fighting in the war—One on the Russian front and one died at the hands of the Nazis, in a concentration camp, which I visited last year in Germany. Their tragic death is another reason for my book. I want to give them a voice and a second chance at life through my words, and write my family's lives forward, so they are never forgotten, and so their spirit can be felt. #neverforget #holocaust 💜
    .
    My beloved mother is soon to be 84 years old. It is my wish to have this book completed this year, printed, and in her hands so she can read it with pride, know her life had meaning, and understand what an incredible inspiration she is to so many.❤️

  • 録画していたNHKBS「家族になろうよ」を観ました。

もう10年以上前に「どうぶつたちへのレクイエム」を読んで、直ぐに「夜と霧」を読み返したのを思い出しました。

数字は現実と向き合わせます。

殺処分頭数の多さやガスによる窒息死が、まるで強制収容所と同様の境遇ではないかと感じました。
また、読む前は躊躇していましたが、読んで良かったとも思いました。その後、世の中を見る意識に変化が起ったからです。それは「自分の頭で考える」という事でした。

もしかしたら、飼っていたチッチとゴンタも保護されていたのかも知れません。確か、父は「訳アリのペットショップ」で譲り受けて来たと言っていましたから。ふと思い出したのですが…謎です。

ただ、保護活動の事を考える度に「川下」だけでなく「川上」でも、何らかの法的な対策を講じなければ限界がある様にも感じています。
このままでは、せっかくの保護活動も情報拡散活動も譲渡会も(現場で携わる方々が)疲弊してしまうのではないかと危惧しているのです。
今後、ペット繁殖或いはペット販売に関しても、ある種の許認可制を設けるなど厳格な制限を設けなければ、相変わらず利潤追求の為に、子犬子猫達が際限なく繁殖され続けてしまう様に思えます。

つまり、殺処分を無くす方向と同時に、交配・繁殖・販売も抑制する制度を設ける…その様な、双方向の仕組み作りが必要な気がしています。

2019 Holocaust Remembrance Calendar of Events “Holocaust Remembrance: Demand and Defend Your Human Rights”

The theme of the Holocaust remembrance and education activities this year is “Holocaust Remembrance: Demand and Defend Your Human Rights”. This theme encourages youth to learn from the lessons of the Holocaust, act against discrimination and defend democratic values in their communities, at a time when the spread of Neo-Nazism and hate groups fuels the rising antisemitism and other forms of hatred around the world. The theme highlights the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.
