Rabbi Shenvald, second generation to Holocaust survivors,
combined stories of forged faith he heard from his father Mr. Moshe,
an Aushwitz camp survivor and his late mother Nehama
who survived the Holocaust, escaping to the Tatra forests in the Carpathians.
As part of the memory of the Holocaust, we must remember
that the Holocaust was not 'hatred of others' - it was a unique hatred of Jews.
And we must remember that heroism in the Holocaust
was not only in the ability to revolt and rebel
but also in the ability to face inferno and catastrophe
and maintain a human image and not lose faith and hope.
