Were Jews really made into candles and buried in Israel?

Every Person Has a Name

From Rabbi Natan Slifkin (Zoo Torah)
In lieu of an essay, I thought that I would refer you to two fascinating stories of zoos that hid Jews during the Holocaust.

One is the Artis Zoo in Amsterdam; you can watch a brief video about its rescue of Jews.

The other is the Warsaw Zoo, whose rescue of Jews has been novelized in a fascinating new book by Diane Ackerman, "The Zookeeper's Wife"

"In both accounts, the unique features of a zoo made it possible for the very brave zoo directors to successfully hide people in the grounds -- both accounts are extraordinary stories of ingenuity and bravery amidst the darkness."
Finally, the obligatory video. This is rather graphic, but crucial history for everyone to see.

And this video's from Jewlicious -- the siren this morning in Jerusalem, and how everything just stopped.

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael טובה הארץ מאד מאד

Is it just me or do they forget to mention (in the first video) that a few of the victims were Jews?
