Auschwitz Liberated 60 Years Ago: 27 Jan 1945

Thou shalt not be a victim.
Thou shalt not be a perpetrator.
Above all, thou shalt not be a bystander.
---Holocaust Museum Washington, DC


It's very important. You are the last generation that can talk to the survivors, we are every day less. We can give living let the world know, to try to get them to learn even though they don't, so that it doesn't happen again.
Auschwitz Survivor Trudy Spira

Auschwitz Liberation Commemorated
During World War II, more than 1.5 million people died at three Auschwitz death camps before Soviet troops arrived to free the remaining prisoners. 60 years later, survivors and world leaders commemorated the liberation and reflected on one of humanity's darkest chapters, the Holocaust that claimed the lives of more than 6 million people.
