Remembering the Holocaust

International Holocaust Remembrance Day is celebrated on January 27 each year. On 27 January 1945, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp, was liberated by Soviet troops.

The photograph displayed on this page is that of the book cover which appeared in an article published at Magic City on Apr 17, 2014 entitled: "Before the Witnesses are Gone." That article was written by Dr. Jill Klein author of "We Got the Water: Tracing My Family's Path through Auschwitz." In sharing a little of the process of writing her book, in her April 17th article she wrote:

When I went back to complete her story, I went through my video transcripts and my notes from conversations with her, but there were details about what she saw and felt that I will now never know. In losing her, I lost parts of her story, and we all lost one more tiny piece of the historical record of the Holocaust. This year, which marks the 70th anniversary of my father's imprisonment, is also the centenary of the start of World War One. There is no one alive to bear witness to that terrible conflict any more: all of the veterans of the first world war have died. Before we know it, the same will be true of the Holocaust.

If you do not know of anyone who has survived the Holocaust; if you have never heard the stories or seen the pictures, then the day will not really have meaning. Dr. Klein, author of "We Got Water" is a social psychologist at the University of Melbourne and in her book she shares her family's remarkable journey through the Holocaust.
