The Auschwitz Album

How anyone can claim that the Holocaust never happened is nothing short of demonic as well as ignorant. I visited Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem. I have also met several survivors. There is another such museum in Washington, D.C. that everyone should visit if they can. Here is an amazing account:


THE AUSCHWITZ ALBUM
This Album memorializes the arrival of Hungarian Jews to Auschwitz in May of 1944. It is the only one of its kind, and it is solely due to this album that we have a visual history of what occurred in the Auschwitz-Birchenau death camp.The album was discovered after the war by an Auschwitz survivor, Lily Jacob, who donated it to Yad Vashem in 1980. Now, with the aid of the Internet, it can be viewed by millions of people, anywhere in the world. Please pass this around, to help assure that people will continue to bear witness to this evil legacy. Please click on the link below to watch the video:

  1. My friend Steve Howard sent the following on another post in this blog:

    ‘When I saw the Auschwitz Album it drove back into my memory something that happened to me years ago. I was about 10 years old, playing hide and seek in my friend’s house. Chip had hidden in his father’s closet. When I found him, he had discovered tucked away at the very back, two old photo albums. Apparently, Chip’s dad had been one of the first soldiers into a Concentration Camp to liberate it. He had page after page of these black and white pictures he had taken of the carnage that he saw. The pictures haunted me for years. For someone to say that the Holocaust never happened or it was fabricated is truly demonic.”
