Grappling With Horrors

Yesterday was Memorial Day in the US and our minds are primed for reflection on and around this holiday. I am in Warsaw, Poland and visited the Ghetto Heroes Monument in an attempt to get into Muzeum Historii Żydów Polskich (Museum of the History of Polish Jews), which is unfortunately closed on Tuesdays. The following images are from the March of the Living display which recounts stories of the Holocaust.

The last pair I include because I think we can all relate to resenting our parents for certain actions taken when in fact they can often be sacrificial and noble. While the displays here are heartbreaking, there is also incredible risk-tasking and millions of acts of selflessness that need to be remembered – both then and now.
