On Holocaust Memorial Day heartbreaking images and words from the memorial ceremony held today at the gates of the Auschwitz concentration camp on this 75th anniversary of its liberation.
“Be not indifferent” are three of those powerful words that were spoken as we remember all those children, women and men who were murdered and who are in all of our thoughts today.

The Eternal Flame in the Hall of Remembrance at Yad Vashem
, Jerusalem, which I drew on July 11th 1967, for this Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, 2019.
“The Eternal Flame, burning from a base fashioned like a broken bronze goblet, continuously illuminates the Hall, its smoke exiting the building through an opening at the highest point of the ceiling. Before it stands a stone crypt containing the ashes of Holocaust victims, brought to Israel from the extermination camps.”
