Hitler deliberately expressed his hate toward Jews and gave ample warnings, as it was all written down in his autobiography “Mein Kampf”. In 1935, the introduction of the Nuremberg Laws stripped German Jews of their citizenship and civil rights.

When they arrived in Auschwitz they Nazi army separated families by their strength, weakness, and gender. All the men and the women were separated. Then the weak and old ones were separated from the young and strong.
They killed the Armenians using several methods. First, those who were in the army were disarmed, placed in labor battalions, and then killed. Second, the Armenian political and intellectual leaders were rounded up on April 24, 1915, and then killed. This date is Armenians all over the world commemorate this great tragedy.

Marty, a detainee in the Lodz Ghetto and a prisoner in Auschwitz Concentration Camp, went with me on The March of the Living last spring. This two week trip takes teens from all over the world to the camps of Poland, to witness first hand what horrors took place there.

Remembering the Holocaust is something that cannot be looked on as a chore. Instead, it must be seen as an obligation to all of humanity.
