Christianity and the Holocaust:

broken_glassOn November 9, 1938, the Nazis began violent attacks on Jewish people and their properties, including the breaking of windows in Jewish synagogues and shops. This Night of Broken Glass, 75 years ago, was the beginning of Nazi Germany’s unmitigated ethnic cleansing, which we know today as the Holocaust.  Six million Jews were murdered, in one of human history’s greatest tragedies.

Christians swore we would learn from the horrific revelations of Hitler’s ovens and “never again” allow such hatred to flourish. Yet, today, anti-Semitism is reaching alarming new levels, while much of the Church remains silent or has become misguidedly “anti-Zionist.” *

There are frightening parallels between Nazism and radical Islam today. From the hills of the West Bank to the colleges of America, anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism have infected modern society. *

Let us not forget the horrors of the Holocaust! Rather, let’s stand with and defend the Jewish people everywhere.

* See the DVD  The Forgotten People, Christianity and the Holocaust, “a heart-wrenching journey into history’s darkest hour.”
