IN MEMORY
A  HOLOCAUST PRAYER FOR
THE SIX MILLION VICTIMS

by Alexander Kimel - A Holocaust Survivor
Almighty G-d, remember the six million people that were gassed, killed, drowned, burned alive, tortured, beaten or frozen to death.  For the sake of one man, a whole nation was crucified, while the world looked on in silence.  In our hearts, their sacred memory will last forever and ever.  Amen.

G-d of Our Fathers, let the ashes of the children incinerated in Auschwitz, the rivers of blood spilled at Babbi Yar or Majdanek, be a warning to mankind that hatred is destructive, violence is contagious, while man has an unlimited capacity to cruelty.  Almighty G-d, fulfill the prophecy of Isaiah:  "They shall beat their swords into ploughshares ... nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more."  Amen.
