Hebrew Voices #69 – Nothing is Forgotten

In this episode of Hebrew Voices, Nothing is Forgotten, Nehemia Gordon talks with author and historian Peter Golden who has interviewed world leaders from Ronald Reagan to Yitzchak Rabin. Golden explains the origin of the word "Holocaust" in the trial of Adolf Eichmann, the critical role Soviet Jewry played in the founding of the State of Israel, and how blue jeans and rock music brought down the Soviet Union. Jennifer wrote: “I love listening to Hebrew Voices. Getting the opportunity to “meet” such amazing people through your program. This one however was one my favorite episodes so far on Hebrew Voices.”

I look forward to reading your comments!

10 thoughts on “Hebrew Voices #69 – Nothing is Forgotten

  1. It is so heartbreaking to know that while I was still in school so much of what happened in Russia and Ukraine in the 1960’s was happening but not talked about so much… and over the years the American history books have been wiped clean just about of any real teaching of real history that matters… I’ve said for a long time that the American public is being ‘dummied down’… creating a world for young people where ‘everybody’s happy’ and everybody gets what they want just because they exist… which has brought us to a place of doing as you said, Nehemia… calling anyone who dares disagree with their opinion a ‘Nazi”… desensitizing the word and it’s real meaning… desensitizing the actual horrors of what really went on in the Holocaust … and so many are being manipulated by the media and their propaganda and don’t see it. It’s all very sad.My heart breaks for the Jews and the anti-semantic attitudes that still exist… and I pray for Jews around the world, no matter where they live, be it Israel or anywhere else… every time I look at the night sky… when I see the stars I think of how God promised Abraham he would have more children than there are stars, or sand on the edge of the seas… when there are clouds I still know the stars are up above them… and I always say a prayer for Israel and God’s people… the night sky is my prayer trigger for the People Of God.
    Thank you once again for a great teaching of truth as to what really happened.

  2. And to think, as a Jew I thought I knew what happened. This is going to happen again, and is happening, makes my heart sick. But, I have been viciously attacked online many times by non-Jews so I know how hated my people still are.

  3. I have, for most of my life , been …what is the right word… fascinated, appalled, drawn to, compelled to learn about…. the Holocaust. I think for me it really started when I read the book “The Hiding Place” and connected it to a friend I had when I was younger who was Jewish. I grew up in a non religious, “christian” home ,and her home was , as far as I knew outside of her bat-mitzvah, fairly non religious also. I say this only to explain that religion never really came into it for me. This has always been a “people” issue. Along with my studying so much about the Holocaust, I also have studied extensively about slavery… again, a people issue, meaning people can and do the most horrific things to other people.
    I pray for those who are lost, alone, hurting and abused and ask God to be that person who will stand outside of the crown and love them…and if the time comes and I am given the choice to go along or fight back, may He give me the strength to stand and fight. amen

  4. Literally sick in my stomach. Not just for the Jews but the incredible carnage and brutality depicted across the board. My dad helped liberate at least one of the camps in WWII. He only briefly mentioned it once. The picture of the quaint village with industrial mass murder factories next door reminds me of the abortion mills here in the US where in chi\c townhouse “clinics” babies are dismembered while the politico\ans declare it is their “right”. 56 million since ’73. So sick, so incredibly sad. The storm is still raging.

  5. What about personally owned guns in Germany and Soviet Union, were all citizens allowed to have them? where Jews allowed gun ownership?

  6. Shalom Nehemiah! I want to say thank you for doing this podcast. I have to say that I found the subject insightful. I am one of the blessed few to have said I myself have been to Dachau. I grew up in an US Army family. We moved to Germany twice while I was a kid, the first time in 1979-1981 and again in 1988-1990. I have been to Dachau a few times. seeing the pictures and everything there is a very humbling experience. I also agree with the state that I wish more American children would know more about History like this than they do at this time.

    Again I thank you for your hard work. May YHVH Bless you and keep you.
