Today is the first day of the school year.
“Good morning,” I said to the school guard.
“Where are you going?” He asked.
“To school, to first grade,” I answered
“But I am already six years old.”
“You are a Jew. There is no place in this school for Jews.”
Yom Hashoah – Holocaust Remembrance Day at Hagar.
In Hebrew and Arabic….
Together, we commemorated the tragedy that befell the Jewish people.
Together, we vowed to work for a better world where such horrors will not touch the lives of any people.
Here, there and everywhere.
