Holocaust Memorial Day, 76 Years of Remembrance

On Holocaust Memorial Day, remember the lessons we still need to learn from the Nazi persecution. . . . 76 years ago, in 1945, the largest concentration camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau, was liberated by the Soviet Red Army. . . . Today I'm thinking of many profound humans - most especially, Irving Roth. . . It was an overwhelming honour to watch Irving Roth speak about his experiences surviving Auschwitz and Buchenwald, who spoke in Saskatoon last year. . . His top tips for us:

1) Watch for signposts, he recognised his slowly, and all too late.

2) There's a difference between reconciliation and forgiveness

3) Must Read: "Ordinary Men"

4) Look at the FACTS - based in academia and science -- Roth says, no one's doing that anymore, and that scares him. . . .

For Holocaust Memorial Day this year, there's a few things to watch online:

Joel Stoppels Battlefield TOurs - visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau concentrationcamp: . . Sky History unveils new documentaries for Holocaust Memorial Day . . Holocaust memorial day: thousands of names being projected onto the French Embassy in Berlin
