The Lost Part Three


I have just finished the third part of this book, entitled Noach. This was the hardest section to get through. There are very graphic descriptions of horrendous acts perpetrated on the Jewish people. I felt that I had to keep coming back to the text to finish this retelling because to avoid it would be to somehow reject or depreciate the great loss of this generation. At some point the author’s brother comments that the Holocaust is not something that happened it is something that is still happening. The same idea that if mankind was created through one man than to kill a human is to kill a whole world. The Holocaust took so many that would have had children, grandchild etc. People you and I would have met and known, people who might have brought huge advancements in medicine, technology, been great scholars and studiers of the Torah…this loss is unfathomable.
