in the skies of the horror camps,
risen from the ashes of millions of victims,
carrying on their silent screams,
saluting their bravery,
and promising to be a shield for the jewish people
and its state - Israel
Nearly a decade ago, on september 4th 2003, these words were read by current IAF commander Gen. amir eshel over the skies of the auschwitz death camp. on this day of remembrance we promise: never again!
