Never vergessen

When I visited Germany with my family, we went to the Buchenwald Concentration Camp.

My great-grandmother died in the Sobibor Concentration Camp:
"Built in March 1942 as a part of Aktion Reinhard in the General Government in Poland Sobibor operated from May 1942 until October 1943 for only one purpose: to kill as many Jews including children as quickly as possible. No selections were made for work or death - victims were brought to the camp in cattle cars and all but a handful were gassed immediately after arrival."

Another relative of mine was in Auschwitz when he was a teenager. And survived.

Don't forget.
