Remember Auschwitz

The Auschwitz concentration camp was liberated 70 years ago today.

Instead of paying respects to the 6 million who died in the Nazi death camps, President Obama will be meeting the new Saudi King.

1 Why would you expect either of them to pay respects for something the Juice made up in the first place?

2 No muslims died at auschwitz so why should obama show up? Besides they can't contribute to obama's presidential library, live and dead saudi royals can!

4 A heck of a lot more than 6 million Jews.

5 You'd be amazed at the number of non Jews that the Nazi killed.

6 Y'all can shrug this picture off.
Tell me again when you see these and the ovens in person.

7 My aunt was one of the few young people who survived Auschwitz. A Soviet soldier carried her naked body out as she was to weak to walk. She was bald, surgically tortured and starved. She lived, she thrived, she was a success in business, a marvelous mother, grandmother, aunt and wife .. she was a miracle to us.

8 Powerful photograph that tells a tragic story. These marks are the products of actions bred by ignorance, intolerance, and hatred. I felt the same way when I've seen photos of lynched minorities.
I am devastated by the resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe and within some liberal enclaves in the USA. I do not see how anyone can deny the Holocaust. Between 11 and 12 million souls were exterminated in the death camps.
Approximately 6 to 6.5 million of the exterminated were Jews. The Nazis also exterminated Romanis (aka gypsies), homosexuals, people with Downs Syndrome, and any others deemed noteworthy of the "Master Race"

10 At the moment I dont know the statistics about all the people the Nazis murdered before they could get to the Concentration camps : the ones murdered right on location in the conquered territory (the method of shooting them wasnt efficient, apparently...), the ones who died of starvation and disease and brutality in the Ghettos.

Also does the 11-12 million figure include the Russian (and other) POWs worked/starved to death by the Germans?

Is the the forced labor (taken from all the conquered territories) casualties included?

The Nazis also starved to death many slavic Poles by policy and had plans to depopulate ALL of Russia's slavic people.
