I’ve decided to write this quick, but intense post, because we all have on this planet the duty not to forget history. Never ever to forget. To never make it happen again.
And in history, one of the most evil (unfortunately not the only one) page is the Holocaust.
Second World War. 6 million Jews, and not just Jews but also Rom and Sinti and gay people and disabled and even just political opponents, have been deported, tortured, killed … just because of their identity, their faith …
Children used for medical experiments, women raped. Lives killed. Numbers given to the bodies in those tattoos on the writsts, not even the dignity of a graveyard, after having taken the dignity away from them even before. Numbers and lives exterminated for the sake of it. In the name of a crazy theory that saw some people believing they were superior, and so entitled to remove everyone else, who was different, from this planet.
And still the story could be repeated. So we must keep this memory alive. Auschwitz and all those places where humanity got lost.
There are so many witnesses, and pictures, and documents. The first thing also Eisenhower did once arrived to free the camps was to instruct to take as many pictures as possible, to never let future generations ever believe that it didn’t happen. It did. And the memory must be kept alive.
There is also another reason why we should remember.
Never to think also in 2021 that anyone is superior to someone else.
We are all equal on this planet. One and only one human race. Science proved it. DNA studies also by Luca Cavalli Sforza and not just him, proved it. Contintents before were attached. The history of mankind on this planet has been well enough discovered and studied.
So I also pray that with Biden in US, the word “race” could disappear. We are all belonging to just one human race. Races do not exist. Stop talking about races in plural! As it was not existing the “Jews race”. So races are just an invention by someone or a group of people to pretend to be superior. None is. And we are all mixtures on Earth, we all descend from the same bounch of people who were coming from one same part of the planet when still continents where attached to each other in just one block. The colour of the skin should be considered as eyes colour. Religions, differences that are not differences … We are all one human race.
So no hate also between Jews and Muslims, in the name, again of crazy fake theories.
Actually the two religions have lots in common, and I’ve attended religious festivals where there were speaking also together an Imam and a Rabbin, who showed what both faiths believe, and there is so much in common.
Have a look for instance at this beautiful page and organization. The Muslim Jewish Conference.
We must break all walls and barriers. We are all brothers. Stop the hate worldwile.
The right Jewish Israeli people are next to their Palestinian Muslim brothers. So stop attacking each other!
There must be a way to live together, in peace. Not in a Apartheid (Hafrada) that knows nothing of human rights and true equality. And Jerusalem is the capital of all religions: Muslims, Jews, Christians. (#FreePalestine in brotherhood)
Please write it down on your agenda next year, on the 27th of January, not only remember the Holocaust, but also remember what it means even today, and how we can put in practice that lesson: never again.
Humanity. Still lost in so many parts of the planet. Humanity still forgotten in gender discriminations, and discriminations of all kind.
Please do remember, and spread the message: we are all brothers. Just only one human race on this planet.
Behave like brothers. Not enemies. Treat everyone with respect and dignity. Not slaves. Love with a true heart and do not cheat. Not bodies. Values. Ethics. Life.
Take care all of you
All the best
See you soon
If you haven’t read it, read among many other books and witnesses, the Diary of Anne Frank. And in it you will find also hope in the middle of hell. The hope of the sunshine after the rain, the storm of the loss of humanity. We must have hope, and be the light to scatter away hate from the planet, to never let this happen again. No to fascism. No to innocent deaths.
