This story from Jake Rosen was aired on “Holocaust Remembrance Day;” a day to especially remember the horrors of Adolph Hitler’s Nazi Germany and the murder during World War II of 6,000,000 Jews!
Many were in Jake’s family.
His mother, a Jewish girl in Poland, spent her teen years … ages 11 – 17 … trying to survive. In her incarceration in Auschwitz, her last Nazi “death” camp to be imprisoned, she finally went into a coma, which may have saved her life. When she awoke, Allied forces had liberated her and the few others who survived Auschwitz.
In later searching for relatives who had survived … she knew of none … she wrote to others having the same name of Rosen as hers. In her quest she met a man named Rosen who proved not to be a relative. She must have been pleased, for she married him! A good result from the marriage is our radio guest, Jake Rosen!
In our radio conversation, I urged Jake to also tell us of his son, Josiah Rosen, a contemporary musician. In further urging, Jake shared that Josiah had written the music for a song named “Boston,” who had reached a “double platinum” status, meaning, I understand, that it had sold more than 1,000,000 copies.
Especially powerful in this radio conversation is hearing Jake quote, out of his conviction and joy: “God made him [Jesus Christ] who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” (II Corinthians 5:21)
It is also a favorite verse of mine from the word of God. It means that all of us who have received the forgiveness from God through Jesus’ sacrificial death and resurrection … and with it have received this wonderful free gift through our repentance and faith in Him … that God looks at us and sees the righteousness, goodness, and purity of Jesus … that He has now placed upon us!!
