27 gennaio, giorno della memoria.                             please scroll down for english text

Era il 27 gennaio 1945 quando le truppe Sovietiche dell’Armata Rossa marciando verso Berlino arrivarono nella città polacca di Oświęcim , scoprendo il dramma dell’oggi  tristemente conosciuto  campo di concentramento di Auschwitz e restituendo la libertà ai pochi sopravvissuti.

On january 27th 1945 the Sovietic troops of the Red Army arrived in the polish town of Oświęcim, discovering the drama of the today sadly known concentration camp of Auschwitz and giving back the freedom to the few survivors.

Liliana Segre ultima sopravvissuta italiana ancora in vita dal campo di Auschwitz ci ha ricordato in questi giorni come il pericolo maggiore sia l’indifferenza. L’indifferenza nei confronti del male attorno a noi. Anche oggi accadono cose terribili.

Liliana Segre, last italian survivor from Auschwitz still alive reminds us that the biggest danger today is the indifference, the apathy in confront of the evil around us. Even today terrible facts happen.

Se abbiamo una coscienza, usiamola.

If we have a conscience let’s use it.

Vi lascio con la storia di un bambino che è volato nel vento…

I leave you with the story of a child who flew into the wind…(  english lyrics are enclosed)

  1. I remember my friend Billy Levy telling me about the gassing of Jews during WWII. The war had recently ended: this was 1948. I ran home and told my mom what he said; I didn’t believe him. She said that’s correct. The next day I gave him a penny from my coin collection and said ‘my mom said you were right.’ I still find it difficult to think about.

  2. Thank you for posting this today. We should never forget, and there are certainly many things to continue to watch and speak out about to help assure this depth of cruelty doesn’t happen on earth again.

  3. i had never heard of the Russians doing that! and yes, there is much evil going on in the world, probably more than anyone knows… Shame on us.
