Household Menorah—People Not Unlike Ourselves Sought To Kill Every Jewish Person On Earth

Above is our household Menorah for the first night of Hanukkah.

(Update—The picture of our household Menorah won’t stay up on the blog. So now we have a picture of the stained-glass menorah you see above.)

One person of our two-person household is Jewish.

In the lifetime of people still alive today, people not so much different from us made an effort to kill every Jewish person in the world.

There were people who lived in a society not so much different from the society we live in today.

These were people who had radios and cars and read newspapers and lived in apartments and attended movies and followed soccer and followed the Olympics.

Please don’t think this could not happen again today in the United States or anywhere else.

People have not changed so much from the 1930’s and 1940’s.

The United States today is filled with millions of people sick with racism and violence.

The best chronicle I am aware of the history of the Nazi movement is a three-volume history of the Third Reich by Richard Evans.

Here is a review of the third volume of the Evans history with links to reviews of the first two volumes.

Here is the link to the United States Holocaust Museum.
