A Dialogue of Suffering Between the Crucifixion and the Holocaust is a curriculum designed to be used for personal use or small study groups. This book also contains many pictures of the Fountain of Tears. Not meant to be an intellectual exercise, this study tool delves deeper in the connection and similarities that exist between the Crucifixion and the Holocaust. The material is based on the The Fountain of Tears, a sculptured dialogue of suffering between the Crucifixion and the Holocaust. Don't expect to find clear-cut answers, but allow God the Father to share His tears one layer at a time, in the questions.

This book, in conjunction with the related DVD, is an excellent study tool. Please contact Ellen for more information at

Seeds in the Wind tells about Rick Wienecke’s journey into the suffering of the Jewish people in the Holocaust and the crucifixion of Jesus. In the mid 1970’s, Rick’s life style leads him into a place of desperation where he begins searching for God. Rick becomes fascinated with the birthing of Israel as a nation only three years after the Holocaust. While working on a Kibbutz for six months, the Lord attaches Rick to the Jewish people, the Land of Israel and to the Jewish Messiah Jesus. Rick’s God-given language through sculpting grows and develops alongside these other points of relationship. After their marriage, Rick and Dafna learn to step out in faith and eventually obey the ‘Heavenly Commission’ of creating the “Fountain of Tears”. This ‘dialogue of suffering’ between the Holocaust and the Crucifixion is in Arad and soon will be also in Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Seeds in the Wind is the story of how God uses a talented artist to share the message of the Father’s heart to His people.

BOOK: The Hidden Root Causes of the Holocaust

Today, many churches are silent when Israel and the Jews are attacked vocally or physically. Many congregations don’t know a thing about Israel being related to God’s Word. That is how pernicious Replacement Theology has been and what it has become. This book clarifies how Replacement Theology, Anti-Semitism, and the Holocaust are horribly and intricately linked to each other.

A congregation hearing the doctrine that the Church has REPLACED Israel in God’s plan, has already been infected by the deadly Replacement Theology virus. For centuries, this theological HERESY has grown like a cancer, metastasizing throughout the church body.

This book clearly shows the links between the anti-Semitic teachings of the early church fathers, Luther’s writings and the Nazi propaganda led to the mass murders of WW II and continues to this day. The church was silent then and remains silent today. We must realize that the demonic forces which caused the Holocaust are still alive and at work.  Are we going to learn and address the hard lessons of the past?  Will the church remain silent and cowardly again?

In order not to be impacted and overwhelmed by Replacement Theology, we must understand where it came from, recognize its disguises and take a vocal, personal and unwavering stand against it.
