05/02/19 - NNHS Newsletter - Yom HaShoah
(Holocaust Remembrance Day)

“Let it be an act of remembrance, for that is what the victims wanted:
to be remembered, at least to be remembered.


- Elie Wiesel
(30 Sept 1928 - 02 July 2016)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   This is not a celebration, but a time to keep fresh in our hearts so we will never forget.

BONUS #1 - Remembrances - Itzhak Perlman

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqQRRYMrYe4 - "I Never Saw Another Butterfly" Preview - Studio East - "...I Never Saw Another Butterfly is a story based on the lives and art of Jewish children held in Terezin during WWII and the Holocaust. Please be aware of the emotional nature of this show and the subject matter it faces.

Over 15,000 Jewish children passed through the Terezin concentration camp during WWII, and only about a hundred were alive when Terezin was liberated. Raja lived through it all, teaching the children when there was nothing to teach with, helping to give them hope when there was little reason for hope. This play is her story. It is history as much as any play can be history, showing the best and the worst of which the human heart is capable of. Recommended for ages 9 and up...."

   Take time today to remember those millions of worlds which ended.....


  From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 04/29/08 (sic) - "WORLD WAR 2 PICTURES..........":

Not just Jews but Christians, ....too sad.
 
 
WORLD WAR 2 PICTURES

These photos were taken in Germany by James Emison Chanslor, an Army Master Sergeant who served in World War II from 1942 until 1945.
Source: Photos courtesy of John Michael Chanslor

It is a matter of history that when Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps, he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

 He did this because he said in words to this effect: 'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the track of history some b *stard will get up and say that this never happened.'

'All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.'
- Edmund Burke


This week, the UK removed The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offended' the Muslim population
which claims it never occurred.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The above sentence is not really correct, but it does nothing to negate the reality
of the horror of these images, or the fact that there are those who make such obscene claims:

http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/holocaust.asp


This is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving in to it.


It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended.

This ..... is ..... in memory of the six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated with the German and Russian peoples looking the other way!

Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,'
it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

.....remember, because we cannot let it ever happen again.


Thanks To ALL Who Served And Are Serving..
Please Pray For Our Troops And Leaders.
 

God Bless America. Land That I love.
 

   Thank you so much, Norris!


  From Me ('65) of NC - 05/04/16 (sic):

  On a personal note, as the Regimental Surgeon for the 116th Infantry of the 29th Division,    my daddy, the late Robert Buckley (John Marshall HS - '25) was present at the liberation of at least one of the infamous Nazi concentration camps, the one at Dinslaken. He would never actually admit it to me, but he was in the right place at the right time, and it would stand to reason that he should have been there. Moreover, on more than one occasion he related in great detail a delousing scene of woman prisoners (he called them "refugees") which I later viewed in a documentary exactly as he had described. Most telling to me, however, was the way he never missed an opportunity to show me, a young child, very graphic images of the camps as they appeared in magazines and on television. Considering the great care he had taken to protect me from other evils of the world, his heroic efforts that I should never forget speak volumes to me, even today.

   Thank you, Daddy.
