An incredibly moving and disturbing video – The Only Surviving Album of Auschwitz

This is the story of a Hungarian Jewish woman who survived Auschwitz and found a coat belonging to a guard which she took to shield her from the cold immediately after her liberation. In the pocket of this coat she found a photo album. It contained pictures of what went on in this extermination camp. Imagine her reaction when she saw a picture of herself coming off of the train as well as pictures of her family who were already murdered.

This album at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem was donated by this woman in 1980 and will forever be displayed there. When you have 5 minutes of peace and quiet in front of your computer, watch it and consider passing it around to people that you know so they can share it and know about it. It is truly moving and important.

  1. It is up to our children and children’s children to maintain a strong resistance to the rewriting of history. This is just one of the many stories in our history that are being minimalized (albeit one of the worst times), or omitted altogether. If you do not study and learn from the past you are destined to repeat it ( or allow it to happen from ignorance). Yes I believe these stories are important and should be shared.
