International Holocaust Remembrance Day

I talk a lot about letting things go and getting over the past, but there are some things we must never forget.

Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, marking the passage of 70 years since the January 27, 1945, liberation of Auschwitz by Soviet soldiers.

An estimated 1.1 million people—mostly Jews from across Europe, but also political opponents, prisoners of war, homosexuals, Jehova witnesses and Roma—were killed in gas chambers or by systematic starvation, forced labour, disease, or medical experiments. About 200,000 camp inmates survived the ordeal.

Take some time today to find out more about this.

Mass killings and genocides continue. They are horrific and must be stopped.

Remember and stop it happening again.
