Napolean in disguise on 9 Av

Napoleon Bonaparte was passing through the Jewish quarter in Paris when he stopped to investigate the strange cries and laments emanating from the local synagogue. He went in and inquired and was told of the destruction of our temples, he asked when it occurred, he was told 1700 years ago.
He remarked in awe: “A people who refuse to forget their past, are destined to forever have a future.”
