Images of the Holocaust

I came across an article on BBC news that compares recent pictures of Auschwitz Concentration Camp with contemporary photographs, showing Jewish families arriving at the camp. These photographs are so haunting, perhaps even more so since it’s nearly seventy years since the camp was liberated. I still think the Imperial War Museum is worth visiting, and I’m looking forward to the Holocaust Museum in DC, however harrowing it may be. When I see these pictures, it’s impossible not to imagine who these people were, what were the names? Did they have children? How did they die?  

Never forget.
