  1. It is so important to have faces connected with the numbers. We need to remember these faces and the lives that were lived. Whether it was at Auschwitz or any of the other Nazi camps, these were lives ended for no reason but hate.

    1. Both comments:
      Well said. Thank you!
      Finding the number on the page was painful and numbing.
      Yet, these horrific atrocities continue to take place, daily at the dawn of 2020.
      Other atrocities that took place in the same century are near forgotten: Armenia, Ukraine, Cambodia to name a few.

  2. One only has to look at the hate for different groups in our own country to see how lessons were never learned. Violence to others never solves anything. This mans facial bones were broken and in those 5 days, we can see how much he suffered.

  3. We were rushed around the camps and I feel that there was more to see. We would of liked more time to look at the photos and read what they did for a living and were they came from I was told there was photos of twin’s which I didn’t see

    1. The photos of the twins were not prisoner photos, but at the end when they were liberated. I went on a trip with a twin survivor. She was using a stick to point to her photo.

  4. I am forever changed by the unthinkable treatment of every person that lost their lives during the Holocaust! I remain shocked that other people do not feel the same way! This was not seven thousand years ago! On my worst day, it is the memory of the victims and their unbelievable misfortune, that I realize of the privilege I/we have been able to live without having to endure this experience. Free of this unimaginable bigotry and discrimination! I can’t even imagine what this was like for every human involved and just because they were Jewish, what ignorance!

  5. I always look at the eyes of these people from the photos and try to imagine what would they tell us, which would be the missage, from their present to our present. We cannot forget any nazi or fascist victim.

  6. I lost all my dad’s family to this barbarism. the only things left were 2 pictures of the sisters I am named after. too all those who don’t believe. what comes around goes around. God finds a way.

  7. I have had the immense privilege of visiting Yad Vashem. The power of this place is unbelievable especially the memorial to.children.
    So much bravery and honour recorded there as well as tragedy.
    We must stand firm against the growing anti semetism we are now seeing.

  8. My mother, a Christian, shared with me the disgust of the Halocaust. That we allow anti semetism a breath of air today is equally disgusting. God will have His revenge.
