A Final Post - from the Pilots of the Army of Israel

I have yet to watch this video without crying, without feeling both pride and terrible pain... "Triumph of the Return" - On September 4, 2003, in a large ceremony, the Israeli Air Force flew three f-15 jets over the Auschwitz concentration camp in a show of the Jewish people's continued strength and triumph over past adversities. During the Holocaust (1939-1945) 6 million Jews were murdered at the hands of the Nazis and their collaborators. Millions of Jews and other victims of the Nazis were imprisoned, enslaved and murdered at Auschwitz and her sister camps. This visit was a testament to the world that the saying "never again" is not just a slogan. This was called the "Triumph of Return." I believe I read that the pilot was the son or grandson of a Holocaust survivor... Many of the participants were the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors.
