In Memory #HolocaustMemorialDay #NeverAgain

Today, just now in fact, the Cambridge Theological Federation came together to collectively remember the 11 million victims of the Holocaust and all those who have been victims of genocide. There is so much I could say, but in the end I think it is worth remaining, at this point, speechless in the face of such inhumanity. It is also worth being reminded that remembering the Holocaust, remembering all genocide, is not about numbers, but about individuals. Those of us who managed to get a seat, for the Rank Room was full to over-flowing this evening, were given the name and brief biography of one such individual. This is one such person:

David Junger was born in Ujpest in 1916 to Mordekhai and Ester nee Wiener. He was married. Prior to WWII he lived in Ujpest, Hungary. During the war he was in Ujpest, Hungary. David was murdered in Rus, Romania.

Let us never forget.
