Holocaust Menorah

10. The Holocaust Menorah

In 1931, a woman snapped a photograph of her family’s menorah in a windowsill. It was the eighth night of Hanukkah, so nine white candles stood along the candelabra, while just in the distance, a Nazi flag hung. The image, freezing in time a notorious piece of the past, has grown to become an iconic part of history for the Jewish community. But until just recently, not much was known about the origins of the photo.
