Updated: Oct 9, 2022

Video from Yad Vashem

Holocaust, Hebrew Shoʾah (“Catastrophe”), Yiddish and Hebrew Ḥurban (“Destruction”), the systematic state-sponsored killing of six million Jewish men, women, and children and millions of others by NaziGermany and its collaborators during World War II. The Germans called this “the final solution to the Jewish question.

Photographs show us a moment in time. Those taken by German Propagandists were used to twist reality and create a false narrative. So when we look at historical photos we must be more critical.

Photographs as Propaganda

Video from Yad Vashem

We live in a world where we all watch screens that tell us stories many of which are propaganda and twisted truth. Many atrocities take place today including genocides. As Christian's we must be sober minded and use discernment and not participate in evil so these spectacular evils will not happen again.
