    Default Auschwitz - 70th Anniversary of the Liberation

    Today, Tuesday 27th January 2015, marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz camps. Known internationally as Holocaust Memorial/Remembrance Day, it will be commemorated by countless people around the world. Please take a moment to spare a thought for those who were there...and also those who suffered at the thousands of other sites of terror.

    Thank you.

    Some 300 former inmates have gathered at the site for today's commemorative events. Together with museum staff, they laid floral tributes at the murder wall in the courtyard between Blocks X and XI, Auschwitz-I Stammlager (main camp).

    if we remember the individuals that suffered from this crime, and not look at them as a statistic of numbers.
    we hope as human beings this will never happen again. a sad time in humanity.

    Well said. Although we cant just simply hope. Humanity needs to remain vigilant and actively work at preventing a repeat of history. This same crime is being perpetrated this very moment in North Korea. And there are forces at work elsewhere that want to see this same thing happen again on a wider scale. But lets keep this thread on track, to take a moment to remember, so that we Never Forget.
