El primer ministro, Benjamín Netanyahu, hizo las siguientes declaraciones en el ‘Para cada persona hay un nombre’ ceremonia de hoy en la Knesset, el Holocausto de los Mártires y Héroes del Día del Recuerdo:

“My late father-in-law, Shmuel Ben-Artzi, left his family in Bilgoraj in Poland in 1933 and immigrated to Israel as an emissary of the Novardok Yeshiva. He worked in orchards and thereby realized his dream of being a Hebrew pioneer. He was a teacher, educator and noted Tanakh scholar. He was invited by Israel’s first Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, to participate in the Tanakh study circle he established. Shmuel was one of the few, perhaps the only one, to receive citations from both the Etzel and the Haganah. He was a Hebrew writer and poet and his poems about the Holocaust won a prize for In 1942, at the of 26, he wrote ‘To the Land of Moriah’:

“Mi difunto suegro, Shmuel Ben-Artzi, dejó a su familia en Bilgoraj en Polonia en 1933 y emigró a Israel como un emisario de la Yeshiva Novardok. Trabajó en huertas y con ello se dio cuenta de su sueño de ser un pionero hebreo. El era un maestro, educador y un estudioso del Tanak. Fue invitado por el primer Primer Ministro de Israel, David Ben-Gurion, a participar en el círculo de estudio de Tanaj que él estableció. Shmuel fue uno de los pocos, tal vez el único, para recibir citaciones tanto del Etzel y la Haganá fue un escritor hebreo y poeta y sus poemas sobre el Holocausto ganaron un premio por en 1942, en el de 26, escribió “a la tierra de Moriah ‘:

‘To the Land of Moriah

My father –
I did not know what had befallen him.
Was he still alive? In what place
there did he wander, pursued and threatened?

A la tierra de Moriah

Mi padre –

Yo no sabía lo que le había acontecido.

¿Seguía el vivo? ¿En qué lugar

De donde paso a ser perseguido y amenazado?

I am here alone going up Mt. Moriah.

Many generations are laid upon my back:
Broken pieces of burnt wood dripping anguish,
And in my eyes lightning-fire of thousands of ovens,
Into which thousands of murderers were not thrown;
a blade dripping blood and anguish in my heart.

Estoy aquí solo llendo al Monte Moriah.

Muchas generaciones están puestas sobre mi espalda:

Piezas rotas de quemado angustia goteo madera,

Y en mis ojos un rayo el fuego de miles de hornos,

En la que miles de asesinos no fueron lanzados;

una hoja de sangre que gotea y angustia en mi corazón.

G-d, give me a sign!

Do not send an angel and ram,
let no shofar sound my name!
The binding of thousands has not assuaged your wrath,
Even my coming up is for naught –
G-d, give me a sign!’

Di-s, dame una señal!

No envíe un ángel y carnero,

que nadie shofar suena mi nombre!

La unión de miles no ha mitigado su ira,

Incluso mi venir es en vano –

Di-s, dame una señal! “

I will now read the names of some of my father-in-law’s relatives, dozens, who perished in the Holocaust:
