Yom HaShoah

Last year, I wrote a post about the Jewish community in my hometown during WWII and especially about a whole family who had been deported and slaughtered in the death camps.

I had shown the photographs of the memorial to a colleague who teaches History and she had started working with a class on what archives she could find to retrace as many personal histories as possible. Thus I hoped to be able to write a post about the students’ findings today to commemorate Yom HaShoah.

Unfortunately my colleague is on early maternity leave due to complications in her pregnancy and the task is far from being completed. However I hope to be able to share more when she gets back.
