A Place of Remembrance . . . How Could Anyone Forget?

This morning we toured the sobering Holocaust museum, called Yad Vashem.

The Hebrew words Yad Vashem means, “a hand and a name,” an idiom from Isaiah 56:5 that refers to a memorial.

Every time I go to the museum, I visit the “Row of Righteous Gentiles.” A row of trees planted in dedication to individuals like Corrie Ten Boom, Oskar Schindler, and many others, honors those Gentiles who risked their lives by sheltering and helping the Jews during a time when few did.

A place of remembrance. How could anyone forget?

Special Memories

It has been so beautiful to see the mother-daughter, father-daughter, and father-son pairs traveling in the Holy Land. We are laughing and praying together as we learn so much about each other and the places our Savior walked. We are making special memories we will never forget and will leave changed forever.
