Send a Letter to a Holocaust Survivor

Morris Rosen, Holocaust survivor and volunteer at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is honoring Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) this Thursday by honoring survivors of the Holocaust, including more than 90 survivors who volunteer at the museum.

Morris Rosen, one of these volunteers, says of his work, “I owe it to my fellow inmates from all the concentration camps where I was kept. They did not make it, but I did. And I want the world to remember them.”

You can honor these survivor volunteers too by visiting the museum’s website, where you can write a personal message of thanks to these brave souls who are doing the important work to ensure that we never forget.

Because of survivors like you I have met and WWII vets I have met I have learned more from the first hand information. I pass it down to my son and nieces and nephew. We have learned so much more from the survivors than what we can learn from the history books and movies. Also I have learned that my dad's grandfather was Jewish and what he foresaw of what was to come. Family members that stayed behind didn't survive.

I pray that nothing like this ever happens again. But I want my grandchildren to know the suffering that you went through. May God send his blessings on you and your family. I continue to pray for you.

The ache in my heart is so overwhelming when I think of all that you have lived through in your lives. Thank you for sharing your stories with those of us who were not yet born. We must teach our children the truth about what really happened to the Jewish people. We must not be silent. For to be silent, is to be complacent.

You are God's Chosen ones, The children of Abraham. I honor you. There are people today who say the holocaust never happend. History tells the truth. It was an abomination what was done to your people. I pray that every God fearing person would keep ourselves alert and in prayer that nothing like this can happen again. I will always stand by the Jewish people and thank God that He mad a way for the Gentiles to be adopted into this family of his people. God bless you and keep you and make his face to shine on you and give you peace.

I was 9 years old in America when the war ended in 1945. My mother and father told my sisters and brothers and I what was happening to the Jews in Europe. It was hard for us as young children to believe that there were people who could do this to other people. We were horrified, and our hearts were broken, and we cried and prayed for the Jews. My heart still breaks as I remember the holocaust. God bless you for your courage.

Hearing the stories of my high school classmates' parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles, personalized their daily trials of escaping the gestapo. Passover and Hanukkah observances in their homes was a very special time. I'll never forget the serial number on a mother's arm of one of my classmates. No one should ever again be required to endure any part of what you endured. I respect you and those in your families who died in captivity or of other atrocities of the time. You will never be forgot. God bless each of you. May you have a long life under freedom.

May G-d bless each and every one of you and comfort your hearts and souls ~ You are doing a great service for your people by being at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum ~ There are no words for how my heart breaks when I think of what was done to you, the Jewish people ~ But the word 'outrage' comes to mind ~ The Jews are G-d's chosen people which makes all of you so lovable to millions of us around the world ~ Each of you is in our hearts during Shoah and forevermore ~ Never Again.

Praise the Lord for His provision and protection over your life. May the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob pour out His favor and blessing over you. Spiritual warfare will continue until the Messiah returns! Those that fear the Lord will be filled with the wisdom from above and will walk in His ways.

i am at a loss for words..... I spent today with you all on my mind. My grandfather had people who died in the Holocaust. In my eyes Jews are very kind hearted, quiet and gentle people. My grandfather was of Jewish descent and lost members of his family to this terrible tragedy. May the G-d of Israel bless and comfort you. This day has brought tears to my eyes many times.

MY DEAR JEWS, I am awfully sorry. Very sad thinks hapen in Slovakian history. I canot change history. Even I would like to appologize you for attitudes presented at the present time. Aproach of Katolic Bishop Conference to Holocaust, it is scandalios. Thanks G-d for new wind, new ideas about relationships to Jews presented by new protestant movements. They are leading people to bless Jews, love them.

I pray for the peace in Jerusalem!!!!

I am deeply sorry for the unimaginable horrors each of you and your people have had to suffer through. Man's inhumanity to man has never been more clearly displayed than it was during the Holocaust. We must never forget.. Your efforts to make sure people know the truth are admirable...may God continue to strengthen you in your mission. The Jewish people and the state of Israel are constantly in my prayers. May God bless you and keep you.

All I know is that Yahshua saw it all and He loves you and cares what you all went through and He also knows what it means to suffer in ways that some of us have never had to, although I believe that time is coming for all of us on the earth that love the Father and His Son, Yahshua, the Yah Who Saves. He is coming back soon, after the Restoration of all things, and when we see His face, it will surely be worth it all. I love you all and pray for you much.

If I had one wish it would be to sit down and talk with someone who actually lived through this. I have always even through school had the upmost respect and desire to learn more about the jewish people. They are Gods chosen people and are to be held with the upmost respect. I would hope to think if I were alive during this time I would have went above and beyond to put an end to such brutality to any person or culture. My heart goes out to the Holocaust survivors and non.

I cant imagine what you went through. I wrote a short poem for all the holocaust survivore. Holocaust fear and hate for the people who took the good memories away. Screams of terro, cries of sorrow,sleepless nights praying for a new tomorrow. Hungry orphaned children,mourning families, hopeful freedom fighters,vicious single minded men, lets not repeat these nightmares once again. Holocaust
