Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day.
Every year on this day, the people of Israel stop what they are doing to remember the victims of the Holocaust decades ago. Roughly six million Jews were killed by the Nazis during the Holocaust, with millions of them being killed in manmade factories that produced death. These are known as the death camps, and they are, thankfully, unique in history. No other nation has ever built such places specifically to kill a portion of it's population.
The victims are remembered today, lest we ever forget the suffering that they went through. Forgetting will likely doom us to repeat these ugly, inhumane chapters in history.
