Even though I studied and read quite a bit on the Holocaust during graduate school and in my own free time, it's still difficult for me to wrap my head around how such a cultured nation as Germany could allow it to happen. Historians are still trying to answer this question.
For today, though, I'd like to feature some artwork from survivors of the camps that shows how they felt after liberation. This online exhibit is at Yad Vashem's website. I encourage you to look at all of the art and read about the artists.
Here's one that particularly wrenches my heart:
Israel Alfred Glück (1921 – 2007)
Liberation, from the album My Holocaust
I urge you to take a moment today to remember the Holocaust. We must keep its memory alive.
