In Remembrance

All photos personally taken by Ms. C

Today, January 27th, is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Research, education, and promoting remembrance and respect of the Holocaust is a strong passion of mine. Last April I traveled to Krakow with E and visited the city's old Jewish district along with Auschwitz and Birkenau. Paying homage to the millions of Jewish, Roma, Sinti, homosexuals, and political opponents who suffered through the activities of the National Socialist state has always been a desire of mine. On this day of remembrance the Holocaust seems all the more vivid as I recall walking through the buildings, chambers, and fields of these camps.

Events during the 1930s and 40s, and the destruction of uncountable communities, families, and lives must never be forgotten.

Almost as much as I love coffee.

All puns put aside, I really do adore the comments you ever-so-kindly post. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and leave a few words. I love hearing your view on the topic!
