Hanukkah Menorah from the Home of Rabbi Akiva & Rachel Posner, Germany 1932

Rachel Posner took a picture of her family's Hanukkah menorah in their window with a Nazi flag displaying across the street from their home.

The Posner family left German in 1933 and emigrated to what is now the state of Israel.  Their Hanukkah menorah was loaned to Yad Vashem and is there on permanent display.  However, every Hanukkah the family takes it back and uses it for their family celebration of Hanukkah.
