Somehow, as the moments tick down to the siren in just over 30 minutes, this video that I just saw is all the more painful.
This is a kibbutz very close to the border with Gaza - last night, as so many of us did in Israel, they gathered for a ceremony to remember the victims of the Holocaust. We remember it with candles, with songs, with testimonies, with tears.
Last night, they remembered it with fear. Notice how the children seem to be the first to react...
