Every year on January 27 we celebrate the International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
During the Second World War, six million Jews were destroyed as a result of the cold-blooded and planned activities of the Nazis. The killing of the Jews also affected Estonia, where 2,000 Jews were executed.
This year we remembered the dead in the Jewish cemetery of Viljandi and Pärnu, where we lit memorial candles. In Pärnu we were with the local Jews at the memorial stone built for Jewish children at the cemetery.
After the memorial service, we went to the cafe with Jewish pensioners, where we served them the best possible food and blessed them.
The gathered enjoyed good fellowship and we had the pleasure to help and bless.
