The kind that celebrate with champaign and cigarettes.
We, and by extension the rest of the world, have chosen to define the Holocaust with these images. For some reason, we don’t usually hear about American Jewry during World War II, so you may be heartened to know that in 1933, American Jews organized a nation-wide boycott of Nazi-Germany.This photo has made the rounds after the recent passing of Rabbi Herschel Schachter, depicted leading this Shabbat service shortly after the liberation of Buchenwald.There is something beyond moving about this image that shows the prisoners, still in their garb, still in their prison, but liberated and celebrating the most important day of the week.UPDATE: See the “Related Posts” at the bottom for the sequel to this post if you want to see more. And, in a weird way, that’s why all those images of us looking so helpless, so gaunt, in heaps of nameless bodies, have become a morbid fascination for us. A story that shows our inner power, our inner turmoil in dealing with a situation we cannot comprehend, our attempts to gain justice, and our final steps into moving above and beyond our past and into a new future. And today, on Yom Ha Shoa, 2013, it’s about time that story got told. The Holocaust has scarred us, a yetzer hara (sneaky bastard of a voice in our heads), that keeps trying to tell us how we are defined by our past, controlled by events that happened to us, instead of using those moments as points of growth. A story that goes beyond victimhood and into our present-day lives.If you look carefully, you can see just how packed this room is.
This image is of a man in the Jewish Brigade, a segment of the British Army that fought the Germans in Italy in 1944. Taken in Buchenwald just after its liberation by the photographer Margaret Bourke-White, this image is so powerful not just because it shows the pure joy of liberation, but because it turns these men who we have almost turned into mythic creatures into normal folks.
