“Where I stand before you, I do not stand alone. With me here, at this time, 6 million accusers. But they cannot rise to point an accusing finger at the glass booth and shout at one sitting there, I blame. The ashes piled high on the hills of Auschwitz and were scattered in the fields of Treblinka, have been washed away by the rivers of Poland and the graves scattered across the length and breadth of Europe. Their blood cries out, but their voice is not heard. Therefore I am here and speak on their behalf the terrible indictment.”
May our Lord Remember, “Sanctified”
(From the words of Gideon Hausner at the Eichmann trial)
This work depicts the Second World War, the significance of the massacre that led the aristocratic European to the Jewish nation.
The work is always relevant, not only for the sake of remembering, but for the sake of understanding the immense power at the hands of humanity. For the sake of education, we will make use of it for the good only.
