LTRP Note: In September of this year, a book publisher in Germany (under contract with Lighthouse Trails Publishing) released a German translation of Trapped in Hitler’s Hell by Anita Dittman and Jan Markell. Anita, 91, grew up in Germany and was 13 years old in 1939 when Hitler invaded Poland. From the time she was six, she experienced cruel anti-Semitic treatment, but in the midst of those years, Anita found the Lord Jesus and still serves Him today. We hope and pray that Germans and other Europeans will not forget the Holocaust, but according to this new report below, “the memory of the Holocaust” is starting “to fade.” This is not just happening in Europe but is taking place in Canada and the U.S. as well. There are young people who have never even heard of the Holocaust, and within our western society (including much of pseudo-Christianity), anti-Semitism is on the rise and many proclaiming Christian leaders and pastors say nothing, partly because many of them believe that Israel and the Jews hold no significance in God’s eyes anymore. We are grateful to the German publisher who is trying to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive in Europe.
“‘Shadow Over Europe’ as Anti-Semitism and Fading Memory of Holocaust Rise”

A report by CNN has revealed a “shadow over Europe” in the context of recent polls illustrating anti-Semitic stereotypes that are “alive and well” in Europe as the memory of the Holocaust starts to fade. Pollster ComRes partnering with CNN interviewed more than 7,000 people across Europe, including respondents in Austria, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Poland and Sweden.
The report maintained that a third of Europeans know “just a little” or “nothing at all” about the mass murder of six million Jews during the Holocaust and Second World War. A quarter believed Jews have too much influence in business, finance, global conflict and wars. One in five believed Jews have too much influence in media and politics and that anti-Semitism is a response to the everyday actions of Jews. Click here to continue reading.
