Last night our Federation Worship, usually on a Tuesday but deliberately moved on this occasion, was an incredibly powerful, honest and moving meditation for Holocaust Memorial Day. On each seat was placed a red card. On one side were simply the words given in my title above. On the other the name and story of someone who died during the Holocaust. We were asked to take the card, and a candle, away with us and remember them in prayer.
My candle is lit for:
Andor Farkasch was born in Hungary in 1882 to Adolf and Regina. He was married. Prior to WWII he lived in Debreczin, Hungary. Andor perished in Auschwitz Camp.
