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.
