MOURN­ING AT AUSCHWITZ

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment -

A MOV­ING Thought for the Day on Ra­dio 4 from Bud­dhist Vish­va­pani (alias Si­mon Blom­field), who re­called an in­ter­faith visit to Auschwitz. He had lost fam­ily in the Holo­caust, yet strug­gled with the visit. But one thing that made sense was mourn­ing his grand­fa­ther and other vic­tims when “I found, to my sur­prise, that Jewish pray­ers helped me do that more than Bud­dhist chants”.
