Thoughtful Thursday: Remembering Auschwitz
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself
Seventy years ago Auschwitz concentration camp was liberated.
Approximately 1.1 million people, mostly Jews, died at Auschwitz and over 6 millions Jews were systematically murdered by the Nazi regime during World War II.
We must NEVER forget these horrors, no matter how terrible they are.
We must not hide our children from the truth. They must understand the importance of tolerances towards ALL others as hate and intolerance leads to places like Auschwitz.
We need to LOVE our neighbours regardless of their; colour, their religion, their sexual orientation, their language, their country of birth, their political ideology - if they are completely different to you or me.
This is commanded of us by God.
