remembering the holocaust

CNN has a commemorative site set up, Auschwitz: 60 Years Since Liberation.

"This week marks the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz -- the Nazi death camp that has come to symbolize the horror of the Holocaust. An estimated 1.5 million people were murdered there -- most of them systematically in gas chambers. Nearly all the victims were Jews. Others included Gypsies, Poles, Catholics, homosexuals and Soviet POWs. For many, the anniversary carries special meaning, as few survivors are expected to be alive in 10 years' time."~~~CNN Special Report

"Let us remember, let us remember the heroes of Warsaw, the martyrs of Treblinka, the children of Auschwitz. They fought alone, they suffered alone, they lived alone, but they did not die alone, for something in all of us died with them."

"I have come to believe that there is only one response, the moral response. Whatever we do must be measured in moral terms. A moral response must not be silent."
