WW II CAMP AUSCHWITZ [27 JANUARY 2020] Memorial : Never Again

Never Again
They stood in fear
Where could they go?
They stood so brave
What did they know?

On this day hear us pray
Each prayer meant for you

B’Yom HaShoah
Yikatevun

How could it be?
The world was blind
Was no one there?
To make a stand

On this day hear us pray
Our prayers call out to you

B’Yom HaShoah
Yikatevun

Never again
Never again
Hear our voice tonight

Never again
Never again
Knowing wrong
From right

The years have passed
We still recall
The spirit left
Inspires us all

One this day hear us pray
The flame still burns for you

B’Yom HaShoah
Yikatevun

On this day hear us pray
Six million prayers for you

The last time.

75th ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIBERATION OF GERMAN NAZI CONCENTRATION AND EXTERMINATION CAMP AUSCHWITZ
27 JANUARY 2020
(includes a 3 hr tape of the ceremony)
Canada’s Governor General Julie Payette represented us.

….

When he announced her attendance, the Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada said:

“Although 75 years have passed since the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, our world is not immune to the scourge of antisemitism. Today, far too many Jewish communities still face unacceptable acts of antisemitism and discrimination. Through our words and actions we must always stand up to hatred and racism in every form. The Governor General’s visit will highlight Canada’s commitment to preserve the memories of the victims and survivors of the Holocaust, and repeat the vow, ‘Never Again’.”

….

Canada is a member of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA)
Canada became a full member of IHRA in 2009.
