Yom HaShoah and my trip to Poland

Standard

As the sun set over the trees, mountains and universes last night we commemorate as Jews, as humans, and as any type of beings those who perished, fought, and lived through the horrendous time we now call the Holocaust. Instead of writing about the tragedy or by championing the progress of Jews today, or even bemoaning how the treatment of Jews in Europe is akin to the climate in the turn of the 20th century, I want to present the photos of what was in Poland – a vibrant Jewish life and what came with the Nazi occupation and Polish complicity as well as the aftermath, which is up in smoke and the ether of reality.
