WASHINGTON – Holocaust Memorial Remembrance Day is Thursday, and a new video documentary about the role of Christians in the unspeakable disaster for the Jews of Europe is a timely reminder about the new wave of persecution impacting Jews worldwide.
In April 1945, near the end of World War II, American soldiers surged into Germany as the Third Reich began to crumble.
It was there that they stumbled upon a horrifying discovery – the Nazi concentration camp, Buchenwald.
Of the 250,000 Jewish prisoners held there, only 4,000 were still alive. More camps were then discovered throughout Germany and occupied Europe – where a total of 6 million Jews perished in what became known simply as “the Holocaust.”
Gen. Dwight Eisenhower immediately ordered the Army Corps of Engineers to film the camps. Otherwise, he wrote, “People will say that things like this just didn’t happen.”
Yet today – despite the mountains of evidence – the number of Holocaust deniers is growing, as a new, worldwide wave of anti-Semitism is reaching levels not seen since the rise of Nazi Germany.
Christians, for the most part, were silent as the horrors of the Holocaust unfolded. Now, the group Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, the producer of the documentary, is calling on believers to fulfill their biblical responsibility and support the Jewish community.
In her film, “The Forgotten People: Christianity and the Holocaust,” Laurie Cardoza-Moore documents this growing hatred of the Jews, the parallels between Nazism and radical Islam, and why Christians must take a stand for justice and defend the people and nation of Israel.
