Once someone in your family was a Jew, even if you didn’t believe, you were still a Jew. They also were prejudice, if you didn’t have blond hair and blue eyes they usually thought that you were Jewish. Abandoned, even if say your Jewish religion was abandoned, say your parents were Jewish, but you didn’t want to, well when it came down to it you were still considered a Jew. Even if you didn’t breath the Jewish life, breath the faith they did, you still lived with the Jewish life. You couldn’t run away from it, you couldn’t hide from it, if one of your parents were a Jew, you were one to. So to determine if they were a Jew, if your parents lived the religion or if your grandparents followed it, they put you as a Jew, they put you down as different.
To say that you aren’t a Christian, is to be scared of his power. If you were once a Christian and then when life is down we kind of just kick him to the curb. He never gives up on us, so why should we have room to? We think that if you were a Christian and then you give up, then it’s kind of a no. If you don’t want God in your life then you deny him. They abandoned him, even though he still accepts them, they gave up, why wait? Once faith is abandoned, life is done, there’s no one to praise no one to thank. So are you still a Christian if you don’t believe?
The torah forbids a Jewish woman to marry a gentile man, but if they do if they have children they are still Jewish. Now if a man marries a gentile woman and they have children they will not be Jewish.
Survivors, when life ends from a sight of hell, life stays in shock. It became a blur. Many of the survivors were homeless, wondering of where to go. They didn’t want to return to that part of home where families were taken property was lost and life ended. Who would want to return to the start of death?
Home, when home is where life ended, they didn’t want to return. It was what was left of a terrible memory. They didn’t want to return to where life was taken over by men who saw themselves as God, where hell became visible, where children were dogs. Where reality didn’t seem real, where it was so real that they could touch it. They didn’t want to touch that part of death anymore though, who would want to return to their grave that took everything?
The international community opened their arms to those children who didn’t want to look at soup, didn’t want to breath death anymore. They took in the Jews like orphans, they cared. In a way it was like a hug from God saying, that he cares and he always will.
