Today my daughter and I had a different kind of memorial day -- I had been to the St. Petersburg Holocaust museum, but she had not. I did warn her, before our journey there, that no one who goes in comes out unchanged. The museum is witness to the conflagration brought on by evil in the world -- the type of evil that generates a war. There are all kinds of casualties in war beyond the brave men and women who fight it. And while the stark reminders of the evil that was Nazi Germany are hard to witness -- the yellow "Juden" stars, the damaged copy of the Torah, the sets of childrens shoes found in the camps after liberation, the unrevised or updated wood and locks of the boxcar that took the prisoners to Treblinka (above) -- hardest of all, and the most memorable reminder of what can never ever be allowed to happen again is the wall memorial of those who did not survive the Holocaust. Two stories high, 300 pictures.. truly a sad memorial on this day.
