60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
Published on January 27, 2005 By Adam Najmanowicz In World War II

preserving the past to protect the future

Today is the 60th anniversary of liberation of the Auschwitz concentation camp. Probably the last round anniversary with so many witnesses still alive. Auschwitz was a German Nazzis' camp of mass murder which took the death toll of about 1.5 million people. Most of them were Jews from Poland and surrounding countries, Poles, Gypsies and homosexuals and Soviet POWs. The leaders of 30 countries gather in Krakow, POLAND (near Oswiecim - polish name for German Auschwitz) today to honor the death of the innocent victims of the sick ideology that some humans are somehow inherently better than others.

Resources:

Bow your head and say a prayer for over six million Jews and Poles (I consider those living in Poland being Poles no matter what religion do they believe) killed in the German Nazi concentration camps.

Thank you, Adam, for this post..

Let us remember not only the millions that died during World War II, but the slaughtered innocents of Rwanda, the victims of rape in the modern-day Sudan, those who lie in mass graves in Iraq, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia....all the victims of senseless violence and genocide.

A moment of silence for them all.

I'd rather hear humanity SCREAM OUT in unison.... NEVER AGAIN!

Too late.  Most of the people of today have forgotten already.  A very sad shame.

Looks like only the Queens grandchildren forgot.... but just in case...some of us will keep the memories alive.

The memories are written in stone. In the digital age those are multiplied thousands and millions of times. I do not feer those will be lost, what I fear though is that with the last breath of the last witness the twisting will become more frequent and more aparent and there will be no one who were there to stand infront of a weasel like the unfamous Mark Weber and confront and ashame him.

The following was not written by any of the Queen's offspring.

Do you think Israel's behaviour is acceptable? Keeping the Palestinians in the giant concentration camps of Gaza and the West Bank, killing them, torturing them, treating them like dogs?

They [sic Palestinians] live with the constant threat of being killed, interned or being tortured. This was how the Holocaust started. I don't want to see another Holocaust.

Even Egypt?  They seemed to be moderating since Camp David (altho not the whackos of course).  What about Turkey?  It is a shame.  It can happen again, but next time it may be Muslims, not Jews.

I don't have enough "insightfuls" to give you as many as you deserve for bringing this reminder to our attention. Well stated, Adam.

Dr. Guy, you are entilted to your opinion, of course. But frankly, I am at a loss about what point you were making (or trying to make) with the last two posts. But let me suggest some things:

The conditions in the Palestine areas are not good. Unemployment is rampant, as is poverty. Violence is a part of everyday life there. But there are no gas chambers, no crematoria. You will find no mass graves.

Eleven million people died in the camps during World War II. Six million were Jews. The gypsy population of Europe was decimated, with an estimated two million deaths. The other three million that died were Poles, Slavs, Catholics, homosexuals and political dissidents. They were gassed, shot, starved or worked to death. I regret to say that this was not the worst that the world has seen.

An estimate of deaths in Russia under Josef Stalin totals 43,000,000. Recently, a previously undiscovered mass grave was found near St. Petersburg, containing 30,000 bodies. Pravda: http://english.pravda.ru/main/2002/09/23/37060.html The mind cannot conceive the atrocity. Before his death, Stalin had ordered the construction of four new camps, to exterminate the remaining Jewish population of Russia, estimated at 2.5 million.

People that compare the current situatiion in the Middle East to the Holocaust (and again, I am not sure that this was your intention) simply do not understand what happened in the past.

I'm pretty sure Docs intentions were to show that the anti semitic sentiments are still out there.

Ah, you are probably right. I was uncertain as to what the quotes, taken out of context, might mean. If so, then my reply is to the ones being quoted, not the one doing the quote.

Today is the day for rememberence. Peace.

Larry, thank you.  First, on the above quote, Catholics as a group were not singled out for the death camps as Hitler was one.  They had to belong to another group (slavs or Poles) before they were sent there.

Second, I was not comparing the Holocaust to the Middle east.  I was showing Manopeace that some seem to forget the holocaust when they compare it to the Middle East.  Sorry my Point was so poorly written.

Thank you Mano. But it was actually to show that some have forgotten the horrors of the holocaust when they use the term and other charged ones to describe what is happening in some parts of the world today. The power of the Holocaust whould never be forgotten or trivialized lest we forget.

on Jan 28, 2005
Doc...I knoe you well enough to know there was no harm meant in your quotes... i agree with you 100% about some forgeting the holocaust...you can see in my last thread that Israelis as well seem to have forgotten.
