The title of my blog post comes from a line in this news article, which is about this year’s March of the Living. If you don’t know what the March of the Living is, I can’t help you. You are too far out of the loop.
O.K. I will take pity on you and tell you about the March of the Living and the Ride of the Living: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/ride-of-the-living/
The following quote is from the news article:
Perhaps the reason we struggle to comprehend the Holocaust is because it is almost impossible to grasp its gravity. I find myself mourning the lives of six million strangers. The Holocaust to me is the ghetto wall of Warsaw, the empty synagogue of Tykocin, the mass grave of children in Kielce, the gas chambers of Auschwitz, and the train tracks of Birkenau. It is the unfinished story of every life that ended prematurely due to terror and unjust hatred. It is one of the most horrific events in history and it is our job as human beings to stand in united opposition of prejudice and all those who would seek to take up the practice of genocide.
Here are some of my photographs which illustrate the places mentioned in the news article, plus a photo that I took of the gate into the Dachau camp.
