Kinder - Yom HaShoah 5769

Like last year's image featuring a Yellow Badge, the names on this graphic were taken from the Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names. This image remembers just a few of the 1.5 million children who perished in the Shoah. All the names on this image are those of children aged 12 or less. The six yellow stars in the wheels of the train represent the 6 million Jews who died as a result of the Holocaust.

*This image is one day late - being on vacation can make one lose track of time.

You can access the large version of this graphic by clicking on the image above. Images that are related to Jewish Holidays live at the preceding link where you can browse by holiday and download the image in high resolution (for printing etc).

Today's Gratitude Item: That New Zealand is boycotting the UN's "Racism Conference" (perhaps it should have been correctly titled, a "Racist Conference"). Even better, sanity may have prevailed as every European Union country representative walked out during Ahmadinejad's tirade (I'd call it a speech, but it was an anti-Zionist tirade). On a less positive note, it is deeply ironic that a conference that theoretically aims to increase tolerance and acceptance of all cultures has been hijacked in this way. Some days it feels like the world really has been turned on its head.
