Work Makes One Free - by Distributor Cap NY

Distributor Cap NY has an absolutely excellent summary of the holocaust. It begins thusly:

64 years ago today - January 27, 1945 - the 322nd Rifle Division of the Red Army marched into an almost deserted outpost of the Nazis in Southern Poland and found 7,000 starving, sick and emaciated prisoners. What they also found was hundreds of thousands garments, suits, pairs of shoes, suitcases, eyeglasses, hairbrushes, and family pictures. They also were standing on the grounds of where somewhere between 1,500,000 and 3,000,000 people were systematically put to death for no reason other than the Nazis said they should be.

Please read the entire post (with photos) here.

For those of us that lived thru those years, the horrors will remain in our minds. Most of us that served during that war knew many that liberated the concentration camps and saw it firsthand. The Nazis kept records that were recently opened for survivors and their relatives. The horrors were well documented and very real. There are films and ledgers that prove what happened. To deny it happened is beyond belief. We see again today how easy it is to whip up anti Semitism as if twelve million Jews could again be accused of causing all the troubles in the world.
