6 million people crying from the grave. Invisible people calling out their names. Beautiful people taken from their homes. Oh, scattered people nowhere to go. And the mother and fathers and the sons and daughters, they were carried away in trains Their bodies are broken and beaten and burned and their ashes fell down like rain. They were branded with a number and a yellow star and paraded around in shame. They called it a crime to be born a Jew and in the name of "God" they were slain
Blessed people who tried to help
while evil people
schemed among themselves. Everyday people who
ignored the news,
oh...indifferent people sitting in the pews. And
the mother and fathers and the sons and
daughters, they were carried away in trains.
Their bodies are broken and beaten and burned
and their ashes fell down like rain. They were
branded with a number and a yellow star and
paraded around in shame. They called it a crime
to be born a Jew and in the name of "God" they
were slain. The forgotten people, 6 million
people, The forgotten people, the chosen people
Can you hear them calling out again? These words are spoken during the song "Forgotten People" by Ted Pearce. The song is part of the new sampler "For Zion's Sake" and is published in spring 2007 by "Galillee of the Nations". Never again! by Jobst Bittner
The Bible says, "For I, the L-RD your G-d, am a jealous G-d, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love Me and keep My commandments." (Exodus 20:5-6)

In most of my Holocaust studies, there were many facts and figures about Nazi brutality, about the many anti-Semites inside Germany as well as those in “conquered” countries who assisted the Nazis in rounding up and killing Jewish men, women, and children to kill them just because they were Jewish. Secondary to the perpetrators were the many silent witnesses from all these countries who stood by and did nothing. Perhaps they felt helpless and powerless to do anything to save the Jews. On the other hand, maybe they were in agreement with what was happening, but felt by not participating in the persecution and deaths of the Jews kept their own hand clean. (Proverbs 24:11-12) says, ”Deliver [those who] are drawn toward death, And hold back [those] stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, “Surely we did not know this,” Does not He who weighs the hearts consider [it]? He who keeps your soul, does He [not] know [it]? And will He [not] render to [each] man according to his deeds?” It would have been a hard thing for people to help the Jews, because the Germans told non-Jewish populations if they helped the Jews, they themselves as well as their families would be killed
Chevra means friendship. Our goal is to help our people in their time of need.
As people in the west began to hear of our work, they began to help by sending food, clothing and medicine. Most of this help came from people in England, Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, and Switzerland. As quickly as aid came in, the amount of people that approached us for help also increased.
Eventually, people in the United States and Canada began to send help, and others became part of the group of workers. We are actively involved in many countries, and go by different names in each country, as laws regarding humanitarian organizations vary from country to country.
Chevra is the American entity for our international effort. Some countries are "giving countries" while others are "receiving countries." We have been so blessed and are so rich in North America and we have the ability to do much to alleviate the suffering and needs of others. Chevra's work is a way people can make a real difference in the lives of many people in need.
Chevra is a humanitarian organization, not a religious one. While we help primarily Jewish people, we do not promote religious teaching as a prerequisite or incentive for people to receive our help. Our policy is to informally cooperate with other charities seeking to help Jewish people, but we will help any Jews in need regardless of whether they wish to receive religious information or not.

To imitate, deceive, or false pretense like: Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) He deceived the entire world, including Britain and the United States.
Pretended zeal to win converts to “God” (?), but with no view in mind other than to make instruments to serve their own oppressions and cruelty!
False doctrines and interpretations of Scripture and ungodly means in escaping responsibility in vows which were made in hypocrisy! Maintaining hypocrisy and pretended saint-ship by outward religious show!
Deep inward depravities and abominations covered only by outward forms of religion!
Hitler did kill millions of people from 1933 to 1945!
Adolf Hitler is an example
of a man who had counterfeit faith!
The way of millions today in churches who are Christianity
goes no deeper than what can be seen!
