LIBERATION!

(ABOVE) The photo shows a few of the survivors in the main Auschwitz camp, standing near the "Arbeit Macht Frei" gate. One prisoner has his arms around the neck of a Soviet People's soldier who is wearing a fur hat.

On January 18, 1945, the three Auschwitz camps, called Auschwitz I, II and III, and the 40 satellite camps had been abandoned by the Germans. The gassing of the Jews at Auschwitz II, also known as Birkenau, had stopped at the end of October 1944. The evacuation of the Birkenau survivors to other concentration camps in the West had already begun in early October. Anne Frank and her sister Margo were on one of the first transports out of Auschwitz, which took them to Bergen-Belsen, where they both died of typhus.

LIBERATED CHILDREN WITHOUT PARENTS

These children were scheduled to die just prior to liberation. Some children were selected for medical experiments, and another group for their "Aryan" [Racial] possibilities: the light haired, blue eyed children. This last group were many times "stolen" children from towns and villages. If they were with parents the children were seperated and the mothers and very small children were always gassed. Ed.



Until the Allies saw the camps, the camps were treated as rumors. The US government never told the GI's even though they had intelligence from escapees and others, of the terror going on in the camps. But, they did not announce this information to the people back home or the GI's until the facts became known to the general public.

Z'CHOR - "REMEMBER": A HOLOCAUST PRAYER

by Alexander Kimel - Survivor

"G-d of our Fathers, let the ashes of the children incinerated in Auschwitz, the rivers of blood spilled at Babbi Yar or Majdanek, be a warning to mankind that hatred is destructive, violence is contagious, while man has an unlimited capacity for cruelty. For our own sake and for the sake of our children, we have to be our brother's keeper."
