WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER AUSCHWITZ?


Today, January 27, 2015, is Holocaust   Remembrance Day and the 70th  anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. It is being commemorated in Poland, which the Nazis turned into a massive grave yard during WW II. Yet so many years later, why is it so very important to remember the largest of the Nazi prison camps and what went on there? What can we learn from the experience and what conclusions can we draw? Do your research and write an essay where you explain the reasons and the justification.
