As an amateur (major emphasis on the word amateur) historian, I’ve seen the above photograph several, several times. You can kind of guess the story behind it: Its the 1930’s, Hitler is in power and across the street a Nazi flag is unfurled, a sight not uncommon in those days. The photographer is Jewish and has set their menorah in the window. The message is clear: the darkness cannot conquer the light, good will always overcome evil, and God will never leave us nor forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6, Hebrews 13:5).
