“Elon”

This is Elon, “My father survived the Holocaust but lost his entire immediate family. His mother and two sisters were victims of an SS roundup and mass execution. His father was killed by Ukrainian militia, right in front of him. It’s my responsibility to bear witness for all of them.”

The words are the Nuremberg Race Laws  of 1935. The Nazis implemented these laws to ostracize, discriminate and expel Jews from German society.

Elon stands in defiance of this injustice.

The weight of history is carried by the generations that follow. May we never repeat this history
