Part 4 - Nearly Extinguished
In Part 4, Rev. Dr. John Tweedie takes you to the sacred ground of Yad Vashem, the Holocaust memorial museum in Jerusalem. Against this memorial backdrop of a European Holocaust that claimed six million Jewish lives, profound questions are asked: How could it happen, especially in so-called Christian Europe? Why didn't the Western nations intervene or, at the very least, limit its horrendous cost in human lives? Why do people suffer in the first place, and where is God in their suffering? What does this mean for the Jews who seemed to have suffered more than any other nation on earth? And why have the Jews been brutally mistreated, time and time again, when they have brought so much light and blessing into our world?
Listen as a Gentile survivor, an eyewitness to Jewish suffering, shares what he saw and experienced in one of Hitler's most notorious death camps.
Perhaps the most profound question asked is this: How could the Holocaust happen in a modern, sophisticated society like Germany where all citizens were the beneficiaries of Jewish ingenuity?
