Although January 27th is the Official Holocaust Rememberance Day, The President has made April 12th thru April 19th a Special National week of Remembrance for all the victims of the Holocaust.
To ALL parents with kids still at home, I would urge you to have a frank and honest discussion about the history of the holocaust and the importance of remembering what happened so it is not repeated.
In my household, we like to watch movies and documentaries. Schindler’s List of course is the go-too classic. We watch it at least a couple times a year. There are several other worthwhile movies; the most recent one being Denial, a very famous true story about holocaust denial.
On the documentary front, there are so many good ones, but the top one I would recommend would be the USC Shoah Foundation. This is the foundation that Steven Spielberg helped fund after he made Schindler’s List. It has thousands of hours of testimonial recordings from actual Holocaust survivors about their terrible experiences inside the death camps.
Stay Alert, Stay Armed and Stay Dangerous!
“Run Boy Run” is a Polish made film with English subtitles that depicts the true story of a 10 year old boys struggle to stay alive in 1940’s Poland During World War Two. This is one of those stories where you keep wondering how much bad luck can one human being have, But as I have said before, it is good Holocaust and WW2 movies like this keep being made so we are all reminded of the horror that was life under Nazi rule. The ending of this movie is fantastic, for like in Schindlers List, you get to see the ultimate reward of Jewish Survival during the Holocaust: Generations of children.
Run Boy Run can be seen on Netflix.
