Transcript of Holocaust Memorial

Holocaust Memorial 2013 What would I have done? "Her behaviour before members of the Gestapo and SS was quite remarkable. She constantly stood up to them, warning them plainly of the bitter fate they would
suffer after their defeat. Curiously, these wild animals, in whom every spark of humanity had been extinguished, felt awed in the presence of this refined, fearless young girl." "I am home .... This is where my life's ambition - I might even say my vocation - binds me,
because I would like to feel that by being here I am fulfilling a mission” "You have to be someone exceptional to fight anti-Semitism...only now am I beginning to see what it really means … but I don't mind at all…we have to struggle. Because it is more difficult for us to reach our goal we must develop outstanding qualities. Had I been born a Christian, every profession would be open to me." ''When I began writing a diary, I was determined not to blabber about boys, as do other girls, but... my diary is becoming like that of any other girl'' (18.6.36)
Blessed is the match consumed in kindling flame.
Blessed is the flame that burns in the secret fastness of the heart.
Blessed is the heart with strength to stop its beating for honour's sake.
Blessed is the match consumed in kindling flame. “I must go to Hungary, be there at this time …
and bring my mother out.” ''The Germans are standing at the gates of Paris and here it is still quiet, the sky is bright and blue, but where are inner quietness and tranquillity? With Giora communication has been cut, and what about mother?? I see her in my dreams at night.'' (26.6.40) Hannah Szenes Eli Eli - 1942 My God - may there be no end
To sea, to sand
Water's splash, Lightning's flash,
The prayer of man.'‘ Hannah Szenes
July 17, 1921 – November 7, 1944 I gambled on what mattered most, the dice were cast.

I lost I could have been 23 next July But death, I feel is very near. Or the next month may still find me here, One - two - three... maybe another week. Life is a fleeting question mark One - two - three... eight feet long This poem was written by the Christian Pastor Niemöller, himself a victim of the Nazis:

'First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out -
because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for the communists
and I did not speak out -
because I was not a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out -
because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for me -
and there was no-one left
to speak out for me.'

What would you have done? Let us remember all the children who died in the holocaust
(Pause)
Think about what you would like other people to do for you if you needed help
(Pause)
Think about all the people who helped during the holocaust and risked their lives for others
(Pause).
We ask almighty God to give us the strength to do the right thing at the right time, no matter what the cost.

Amen Hannah Szenes July17th 1921- November 7th 1944
