At first, when she mentions the “flaming sword,” this could be a reference to the flaming sword God used to banish Adam and Eve from the garden of Eden. Also, when Lazarus says “the children of the prophets of the Lord,” she is making a reference to a bible passage in the Old Testament that states that Jews are the prophets/first children of God.

In conclusion the holocaust was a tragedy for everyone involved. Families were torn apart, jewish had their rights stripped away, and they lost everything they cared about.
