"Encountering Auschwitz" - Video in Observance of "Holocaust Remembrance Day"


In observance of "Holocaust Remembrance Day," here is a video from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum called "Encountering Auschwitz," the largest, and one of the most notorious of the Nazi Concentration (Death) Camps. Israel came to a standstill today in observance of the solemn Remembrance Day:

A complex of camps, Auschwitz included a concentration, extermination, and forced-labor camp. It was located 37 miles west of Krakow (Cracow), near the prewar German-Polish border.

It is estimated that at minimum 1.3 million people were deported to Auschwitz between 1940 and 1945; of these, at least 1.1 million were murdered.

In this film from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, historians and survivors discuss the significance of Auschwitz.
