Today is International Remembrance Day. Today marks the 69th Anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. The atrocities committed during WW II by the Nazi’s needs to highlighted today of all days. Those same types of atrocities are still being committed all over the globe in the 21st century because we fail to learn from what is the worst that Humanity has to offer.
Today I remember Kazimierz Smolen. He died on 1/27/2012.
He died in the same town that held him captive during WWII. He lived a long life of 91 years against all odds. I never knew the man until I read an article about him reflecting on Remembrance Day. I honor him today on this auspicious day!
