Holocaust Day Timeline

I’ve always felt a certain affinity to the Jewish people and identified with their fate. The two nations have had a long common history – Cyrus the Great allowed the Jews to return to their homeland, and young Israel helped Iran become a modern country and overcome the adverse affects of earthquakes (without their help, earthquake victims just remain homeless, because the taxpayer’s money goes to more important tasks, like helping Arabs in a far away land to attack our former ally).

We’re both ancient nations who have kept their identity through severe persecutions¬†on religious grounds. The difference is, we were forced to adopt the aggressor’s identity in our own homeland, and Jews were persecuted without a homeland.

On the last Holocaust day, this is how my Facebook Timeline looked.

The star I assume you all know. The dry rose in the snow is a picture I took near my old home in Tehran, about a year before I left. I miss Tehran.
