The Holocaust

The Holocaust was one of the most tragic events known to mankind. There were many tragic events leading up to the Holocaust. One of those events was Kristallnacht. This event took place on 9th November 1938, where Germans destroyed many Synagogues, Torah Scrolls, Jewish businesses, and much more.

As he says at the end ” don’t walk in front of me I may not follow, don’t walk behind me I may not lead, just walk beside and be my friend”. That is what everyone needs in life, a good friend to be there during good times and bad.
