Auschwitz Is Liberated (1945)

During the implementation of Nazi Germany's Final Solution, between 1.1 million and 1.5 million people, more than 90% of them Jews, were tortured, starved, and murdered at Auschwitz in southern Poland.

I agree it is a time to mourn not only the Holocaust victims but also those less heard of soles that have been murdered senselessly including in Rwanda, Iraq, Cambodia, Somalia, the world trade center bombings and all that have suffered.

People are good, but the gene pool is full crazies and as mankind we must work to eradicate them from society.
