68 years ago was the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau by Soviet soldiers. They found several thousand emaciated survivors and the smouldering remains of the gas chambers and crematoria – the Nazi attempt to destroy evidence of their Crimes Against Humanity. Auschwitz-Birkenau was the largest Nazi killing camp, where approximately 1.1 million men, women and children were murdered.

Thanks, its good to be reminded of such things. If you ever get the chance to hear a survivor speak about the holocaust, take it while the opportunity still exists. I did and it really puts things into perspective.

"Shoah" is well worth watching for getting a feel for the scale of this.
I'm not sure it will ever be shown on TV though.

Perhaps a day to break out the "Killing Fields" as well.

I like your post, because of the existence of holocaust deniers. I know it's Wikipedia, but here's a good website about them:
