As Holocaust survivors continue to age and their stories disappear, Holocaust Remembrance Day becomes even more important. Two years ago, Paula Lebovics, Miriam Ziegler, Gabor Hirsch and Eva Kor reunited on the 72nd anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz to identify themselves in this iconic photo of that day. #neverforget#neveragain#holocaustrememberenceday#liberationofauschwitz
On this day, International Holocaust Remembrance Day and the 73rd anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, I choose to reflect. In 2012 I had the opportunity to spend a week in Poland studying the Holocaust. As a part of the course we visited both Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II (Birkenau). The idea of the place I had in my mind from years of study in high school and college didn't compare to witnessing the evidence of genocide firsthand. And even more unsettling was the peacefulness of such a place when we arrived on an early March morning. It was quiet and calm, birds were chirping, and I remember seeing a landscape dotted in birch trees. I learned that the Polish village of Brzezinka was named for the abundant birch trees. The Germans too chose their name for the area based on the birch trees - Birkenau. But in the camp the trees were no longer part of a beautiful scenic landscape. They were walls behind which victims of the Nazis had to wait in cover for their turn at extermination. I grew up with a birch tree in my front yard that had many fond memories attached to it, but after this trip I can't think of them the same. These trees have a gravity to them, a history, and that is something that's always stuck with me. So for fear of repeating history (yet again) in a world that is still too full of hate and prejudice and ignorance, we can't afford to forget the atrocities committed by the Nazi regime - the systematic dehumanization and murder of millions of Jews, Poles, Serbs, Roma, the disabled, homosexuals, and all the other victims targeted during this time. #nashville#holocaustremembranceday#liberationofauschwitz#auschwitz#oświęcim #birkenau#brzezinka#poland#birchtrees#history#wwii#liberation#freedom#bearwitness#neverforget#neveragain
Auschwitz-Birkenau Extermination Camps, Oswiecim, Poland Doug Hickok @hue_and_eye_photography ...Today marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. Its also International Holocaust Remembrance Day...I’ve been so fortunate over the years to have lived in and visited some of the most amazing places on the planet. But by far the most gut wrenching place I’ve ever seen were the Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration/Death Camps...I can’t put into words how sad and angry I felt after learning firsthand the incomprehensible atrocities that happened here. You’ve heard about it. You’ve read about it. You’ve probably seen movies about it. But there’s nothing that prepares you for actually seeing it. ..There was so much to try to comprehend. Walking through the cell blocks and seeing the everyday personnel articles left behind by the victims. All those little shoes got to me. Some places I couldn’t bring himself to see, like the building with the ovens and smoke stacks. ..1.1 million people were murdered here in a span of about 5 years. It’s all the more shocking that the idea for the Final Solution originated from a highly cultured, highly educated, technologically advanced Christian nation. ..To this day it makes me infuriated to think about man’s inhumanity toward man. Whether it’s the Holocaust, ethnic cleansing, slavery… it’s an outrage these atrocities keep happening. ..I wonder what’s to prevent this from ever happening again? All it takes is one soulless, racist, megalomaniac, with enough fanatics to follow him... and history repeats itself. ..I sincerely hope it never does.
