Rozetta Soelamith Ossendrijver, a Dutch Jewish girl born in Den Hagg on May 23, 1940, was deported to Auschwitz. There she was murdered with her mother on August 26, 1942. Her father was murdered four days later.
She was two years old!
This enrages me.
Like all children, her life was beautiful and precious.
At the time of these murders at Auschwitz, World War 2 was in its beginning stages. When Rozetta was born, France was falling in record time to the German war machine. When she died, the U.S. was just beginning to mobilize.
Three years later, Hitler blew his brains out in a Berlin bunker and met his fate.
God sometimes takes His time, but He always metes-out justice and judgement.
I have been to Yad Vashem and the U.S. Holocaust Museum many times. In Washington, the display that most affected me was one that spotlighted the 1.5 million children butchered by the Nazis.
Not enough people are enraged by this.
On my property, I have a gravestone that I had made for Czeslawa Kwoka, a Polish Catholic girl murdered at Auschwitz on March 12, 1943. She was 14 years old.
(The Nazis of course did not confine their murderous impulses with Jews only; they targeted anyone vulnerable in Europe.)
Czeslawa’s prison photo survives; a fellow prisoner remembered when she was “processed” in December, 1942. Her body was shoved into the same ovens that burned Rozetta.
When Czeslawa was brought to this place of horror, she was abused by camp guards (women). A series of three photographs show her, terrified, after she’d been beaten. She did not understand German, and so this added to her confusion over what was happening to her. I think about this often.
She was a precious child robbed of a future by demons drunk on power over the helpless. Her marker rests at the base of a walnut tree overlooking a beautiful valley, and I see her every day.
Today, Twitter allows accounts that threaten the murder of Jews worldwide. This is unacceptable.
In the throat of European nations (that just announced that Israel should not build anymore homes in Judea/Samaria), one can hear the death rattle. They long ago doomed themselves, and now, 80 years after the Holocaust, it is fashionable again to advocate for Jewish genocide.
In the past week in Israel (Elad), terrorist demons used axes and knives to murder three Jews. Almost incredibly, one of the victims had given the terrorists a ride into the city, where they murdered him.
On May 8, a terrorist attacked a border guard with a knife. A 19-year-old Palestinian named Natheer Marzouq did the deed. He is from the village of Abwein, north of Ramallah. The latter of course is the “seat of government” for the PA/PLO. It is infamous for an attack on two Israeli soldiers 20 years ago, in which terrorists murdered them and dumped their bloody bodies out a window.
This was in the years of Clinton-Bush, and those two shameful failures did nothing of substance to stop the murder of Jews.
Defense Minister Benny Gantz has announced the construction of many more homes, and Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said Israel alone would make decisions about the flow of traffic on the Temple Mount. At least they are behaving as proud Jews for that.
Naturally, the PLO called on the international community to condemn Israel.
Friends, the endgame is approaching. The world cannot sustain the level of delusion and insanity we see on a daily basis from various governments.
In Jeremiah, the Lord tells Israel that He has loved her with an “everlasting love.” In verse 17, we read:
“And there is hope in thine end, saith the Lord, that thy children shall come again to their own border.”
In Isaiah 49:26 we read this marvelous promise:
“And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the Lord am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.”
It is then those precious girls will be avenged.
A reckoning is coming, and coming soon.
I can’t wait.
