PHOTOS: U.S. Troops, Officials Gather in Honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day at MDL Joint Base

PHOTOS: U.S. Troops and officials gathered at the MDL Joint Base today to honor Holocaust Remembrance Day, which also marks the 70-year anniversary of the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto uprising.

The memorial event served as a reminder of the one of the darkest periods of Jewish history, in which 6 million were murdered by the hands of the blood-thirsty nazis, Y’MS.

R’ Yehoshua Brisk, one of the youngest survivors of the Auschwitz concentration camp, was the featured speaker at today’s event. Brisk, surrounded today by children and grandchildren and who was 14 years old during the war, spoke about his chilling experiences of the war, and his liberation. Brisk also survived the Bistritz ghetto, Kaufering and other nazi camps.

The event was particularly moving for Brisk, who had the opportunity today to thank the U.S. Army which liberated him in 1945.

The event also an address by Chaplain Menashe Miller, a slide show and a candle-lighting ceremony in memory of those who died in the war. One of the candles was lit by a holocaust survivor. [TLS. Photos provided by the Lakewood Shopper].
