The UN has designated Jamuary 27th as Holocaust Rememberance Day. There are dozens of books on the holocaust and about those who witnessed and survived it. We must never forget. Here is some reading suggestions:

Henia Bryer: prisoner number A26188 (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-21200051)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primo_Levi

A work of fiction but I included this novel because it's author has a fantastic survivor story of his own.

Vash, I've only had time to look at the article about Henia Bryer so far and... What that lady went through and experienced no one should have to. :(

Thanks Buzz for starting the thread.

That she and so many others (millions) did go through it and in so cases endure and survive it is what amazes me. I don't know that I would have lasted a week in the camps before I snapped and got myself gunned down. And would likely have found out, had I been born fifty years earlier in Europe, rather than in Canada in the 50s.
