This evening will mark the end of this contemplative occasion. Let us also remember--or perhaps learn about--the Holocaustian treatment of the animals.
For an unauthorized but approved adaptation of my essay comparing the treatment of nonhuman animals to the Holocaust, click HERE. I am talking about Sztybel, "Can the Treatment of Nonhuman Animals Be Compared to the Holocaust?" Ethics and the Environment 11 (Spring 2006): 97-132.
For a ghastly photographic interpretation of the comparison, with updates, see HERE. That is not necessarily for everyone. But let it be for those who need to see this.
