70 Years Later, A History and Remembrance

Today is the 70th Anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. As a way to connect my readers with information about Auschwitz and its liberation, I have created the attached PDF fact sheet. Please take a moment to look over it and feel free to share it with friends and family. I have embedded a picture here:

and you can find a link to the PDF you can download here (which has built in resource links).

On a day like today, I would like to take a moment to remember those who we lost during the Holocaust, as well as those as well as the triumph of the human spirit that emerged in the wake of one of the world’s greatest tragedies. I try to remember the survivors and their plight, both before and after the war, when I am working to improve their lives. This is the reason all of the AmeriCorps VISTAs are dedicating a year of service, to make a difference in the lives of those that survived.

  1. The Holocaust is a pure conflict of heartless ideology against life-seeking spirituality. Heartless ideology has passed; life-seeking spirituality has triumphed.
