Gramps,

I’ve recently read of the Holocaust and it seems overwhelming that so much devastation could happen. I remember hearing of a biblical reference that Moses gave his people that I think referred to the Holocaust, but I’m not sure where it is or what it means. Could you help out?

Dear Anonymous,

Indeed, the holocaust was so horrible that it’s difficult to believe that such depravity could exist. But believe it! It should never be forgotten! Many still live who were eye witnesses and participants in those unspeakable experiences. My wife’s sister was married to a man who’s father died in the gas chambers and whose mother survived to give the account.

I could find no reference in the scriptures to the word holocaust.
