"In our weakness, we called the madmen 'Them' and 'They,' are we so different, would be have stood in their way?" -Anonymous
70 years ago today, the Soviet Red Army liberated some 200,000 remaining prisoners at the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. The low estimate of the number of individuals who were murdered in the camp between 1940 and 1945 is 1.5 million (of course, we will never know for sure exactly how many perished). Our world is very different than it was in 1945, but yet it is still so very much the same. Please never forget and never tolerate the persecution of fellow human beings or hate in any form. Please, Never Ever Forget.
I think, one of the saddest realities is that the slogan for Holocaust remembrance used to be "Never Again." Sadly genocide has happened many times in the last seventy years...it happens every single day, as the world looks on.
