A Grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands
ERNA
These trees are planted as a family grove
in the peaceful forests of the Scottish Highlands for remembrance of the lives
and the deaths of our relatives who were
murdered in the Nazi Holocaust.

13th October (Birthday of our dearly loved father, a peaceful man)

We didn’t know you, our relatives, as individuals but we do now know of the unspeakable inhumanity
inflicted upon each of you and the torturous years and sufferance you lived before your deaths.
We embrace each one of you and all of you. Your strength lives on…

In memory of the family we never got the chance to know. May you sleep in eternal peace

How odd of God to choose the Jews. But how on earth could we refuse? Was the choice reciprocal? Fact eternal or just cyclical? Was it mystical, statistical, poetical, umbilical? The consequence let us confess Is no small measure of distress. We stand accused, we are confused. Oh dear, can we please be excused? (Leonard Fein. ‘Chosenness and its Discontents’. Jewish Daily 2010 ),
