International Holocaust Remembrance Day
Daniel Krauthammer, writing in The Weekly Standard, on a visit to the site of the Auschwitz death camp. An excerpt:
The extermination camps were different. The Nazis built only six, and for just one overriding purpose: the destruction of European Jewry. The vast majority of the 1.1 million Jews deported to Auschwitz never entered its concentration camp at all. They didn’t last the few weeks that most other prisoners did. They lasted less than an hour.
