Belated post in Honor of Victory Day and Jewish Veterans.
Posted by minsky on May 17, 2007
Considering the number of Jewish WWII veterans, who heroically fought against the Nazi’s, and together with the Soviet Red Army liberated Majdanek, Auschwitz, Belzets, Sachsenhausen, putting a stop to the Holocaust, our omission of May 8-9 as a Victory Day, calls for rectification. Better late than never. I ask all those reading this blog to post some comments in honor of those predominantly Russian Jewish, and non-Jewish Russian war veterans who reside in the Bay Area and celebrate May 9th as Victory over Nazism day. We need to honor their courage, their memory, and their contribution to our lives. Please read about their experience:
Having had the moving and personal experience of participating in the commemoration of a monument dedicated to Jewish World War II partisans, I invite readers to learn about their heroic, and valuable contribution to the defeat of the Third Reich, and for their contribution to the survival of the Jewish people. The Jewish partisans website is a good place to start .
