Dear Friends,

Our thoughts are with all of the victims who are mentioned in the following Wikipedia description:

“International Holocaust Remembrance Day, is an international memorial day on 27 January commemorating the victims of the Holocaust. It commemorates the genocide that resulted in the death of an estimated 6 million Jews, 2 million Roma, 250,000 mentally and physically disabled people, and 9,000 homosexual men by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. It was designated by the United Nations General Assembly resolution 60/7 on 1 November 2005 during the 42nd plenary session.The resolution came after a special session was held earlier that year on 24 January 2005 during which the United Nations General Assemblymarked the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps and the end of the Holocaust.”

We are especially focused on Bill’s Aunt Elsbeth who spent time in Ravensbrück labor camp and the factory at Neustadt/Glewe, a sub-camp of Ravensbrück. Click HERE for 1/25/16 detailed article on the camp entitled “FORCED ABORTIONS AND MEDICAL EXPERIMENTS: LAST SURVIVORS OF NAZI WOMEN’S CAMP TELL THEIR HORROR STORIES.” Below is a chart showing Elsbeth’s unfathomable wartime experiences with her first husband Robert Gerst, who was tragically murdered 6 weeks after he entered Auschwitz. He remains a powerful memory for us. Click HERE to see photos of Elsbeth and Robert.

On this day, it is our hope and prayer NEVER NEVER AGAIN!

Thank you for your continued interest,

Harriet and Bill
