66 Years Ago Today...

From here.

Auschwitz-Birkenau was liberated. And we remember those who lost their lives there, and in every other Nazi extermination camp across Europe, as well as those who have suffered since, and still suffer, the horrors of genocide around the globe.

We said, "Never Again."

Cambodia.
Bosnia.
Rwanda.
Darfur.

But that is why we have to say it again. Louder.

I swore never to be silent whenever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. - Elie Wiesel, Holocaust Survivor.
