International Holocaust Memorial Day

January 27 is International Holocaust Memorial Day as set by the United Nations*. (Different from Yom HaShoah) In pausing to remember, reflect and recognize the gravity of the Shoah, The 2 Spies would like to share with you a message from the Cheif Rabbi Lord Sacks.

*Israel, however, observes its official Holocaust Remembrance Day on the 26th of Nissan, the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, according to the Jewish calendar. Its selection reflects the Jewish state’s preference to emphasize Jewish resistance to the Nazis.


  1. Thanks for sharing this video.

  2. Thank you for sharing. People so need to realize what humans are capable of doing to each other.
    Watching this still touches me to the very core of my being. and I so wish and pray that people would truly realize that one cannot remain silent at any injustice and evil.

  3. Steve Perry, UK: "If you wish to go to extremes let it be in sweetness, patience, humility and charity." [St Philip Neri]

  4. Such a powerful message. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Our hearts still ache when we remember the torments of precious souls that suffered in the Holocaust.
    Messiah Y'shua cares for His beloved.
    Many suffered past words of telling! Even past our understanding! God bless and protect Yisrael and Jewish of GOD'S eye!
