Having been in Israel for a holiday, I couldn't leave without visiting the Yad Vashem, which is the national Israel Holocaust Memorial Museum. As someone who lost family in the Holocaust, it's a very personal visit.
While I was in the Hall of the Eternal Flame, I was thinking about how important it is to keep the memory alive of the very real tragedy many families felt. So I started to think about my own future, while reflecting on the past.
I think it is important enough that I'd want to take my children, if I'm ever granted them, to visit the Yad Vashem and to know of our past heritage.
Keeping the flame of my family burning into the next generation!
