A Holocaust prayerTormented JewA Holocaust prayer

God full of mercy who dwells on high

Protector of widows and father for the fatherless

Please be not silent and show no restraint

on behalf of the Jewish blood that has been spilled like water.

But grant perfect rest on the wings of Your Divine Presence

In the lofty abode of the holy, pure and valiant

who shine as the brightness of the heavens

to the souls of our brothers and sisters

Six million Jewish

men, women and children

Who were put to death, slaughtered, burned,

starved, buried alive

Or who suffered other forms of unnatural death

at the hands of the accursed Nazis

and their associates - may their name be wiped out!

In Auschwitz, Treblinka, Maydanek, Malthausen

and in other death camps in Europe

And who gave up their lives in order to Sanctify God's name.

Because we are at one with their memory

and we pray for the elevation of their souls

Their resting place shall be in the Garden of Eden.

Therefore, shall the Master of mercy care for them

under the protection of His wings for all time

And bind their souls in the bond of everlasting life.

O Earth! Do not conceal their blood

and let there not be a resting place for their cry

In their merit shall the remnant of Israel

return to its rightful place

And as for the holy ones, their righteousness

shall be in front of the Lord as an everlasting memory

They will come in peace and will rest in peace

They will meet their rightful destiny at the end of days

and let us say Amen.
