Humanity: A Tale in One Photo "It is impossible to believe anything in a world that has ceased to regard man as man, that repeatedly proves that one is no longer a man." ~Simon Wiesenthal, The Sunflower It is the season of sunflowers. Soon, they will tower over all other flowers in my yard. Once upon a time, they marked each grave in a German military cemetary. When I was a young girl, my mother used to say I wore my emotions on my shirt sleeve. I suppose she was right, because I often still do. For the most part, I'm pretty transparent and, I won't deny, highly empathetic to the needs of others. I can't help but wonder what has happened and is happening to our world. I can't help but think of the Holocaust survivors when I see the sunflowers bloom in my yard and wonder how our world ended up here--so divided and filled with hate-- once agin. I can't help but wonder how we, as a species, will survive if we continue to turn on each other. I can't help but pray for our collective humanity. #humanity #wecandobetter #sunflower #holocaust #neverforget

FINISHED! This was an easy read — breezed through it in 2-3 days. It’s based on a true story about a Slovakian Jew called Lale Sokolov who was sent to Auschwitz during World War II and somehow survived because he was assigned to be a tattooist — his job was to ink the blue numbers on the prisoners’ arms. This role enabled him to move more freely within the concentration camp and he used that privilege to help others. This is also an amazing love story — I didn’t think that was possible in Auschwitz but it did happen for Lale and Gita. Kiwi author Heather Morris wrote this first as a screenplay but after 12 years, turned Lale’s story into a novel. She interviewed him 60 years after his time in Birkenau/Auschwitz II, backed it up with research, and pieced the fragments together. It has deepened my desire to visit Auschwitz. The seed was planted when I read my lil’ men’s Sec 2 Literature text, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (John Boyne) some years back, and probably even before that. J2 asked me if I will be overwhelmed by the place. I told him I don’t think so cos it’s now such a tourist destination... but I think I can’t help but be. Visiting Anne Frank’s house in Amsterdam already got to me. I’m tempted to classify this novel as historical fiction but because it’s based on a true story, I can’t quite. Sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction. #thetattooistofauschwitz #heathermorris #auschwitz #birkenau #holocaust #concentrationcamp #worldwar2 #nazigermany #historicalfiction #fiction #biographical #goodreads #bookstagram #readersofinstagram #pamhoreads #pamhoreads2018

With so much evil in the world right now, it’s imperative we remember past atrocities so present and future generations cannot forget how easily and quietly injustice can be carried out #holocaustmemorial #holocaust #memorial #berlinmitte #berlingermany #berlin #germany #europe #ig_deutschland #ig_berlin #deutschland #remember #neverforget #commemoration

The most daring escape from Auschwitz - part 2 Piechowski said: This thought came to my head, I can win this if I base on how stupid the Nazis are. I teased the fact that the Germans thought they were so much better than everyone and that the stupid prisoners can't come up with nothing creative. They thought all we want is to find a potato and to eat it. So I decided to escape through the very main gate. Man, I said to myself, you can leave this place as a member of a fake work unit! It can be Rollwagenkommando! This is how you respect the commandant's orders! You are not escaping from a real block or a real kommando! Now you know! Let's get down to work now – from the book by Kazimierz Piechowski – I was a number... Piechowski decided that four prisoners should escape as the smallest work units consisted only of four people. The second prisoner was Eugeniusz Bendera – prisoner number 8502 who was deported to Auschwitz on 9th January 1941. His friends told him he was on the list of the people to be executed and that became the reason for the escape. Third person was Stanisław Jaster – prisoner 6438. This is how Piechowski described him: He worked in the warehouse. He was a young boy from Warsaw, so fierce. He was a bad boy in the best meaning of this word. The fourth prisoner to escape was Józef Lempart – prisoner 3419. He was a priest from Wadowice. As a result of his escape, his parents were deported to Auschwitz. His mother died in Birkenau. In the pictures you can ser Stanisław Jaster before the war.

The Nazis came to power in Germany in January 1933, in a coalition government with conservatives. This event was immediately followed by violence against Germany’s Jews. When this produced international protests, especially in the United States, the Nazis organised a one-day boycott of Jewish shops in Germany on 1 April 1933. This photograph shows a poster urging Germans not to buy from Jewish-owned shops. The boycott was orchestrated by the Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels, who expressed his thoughts in his diary. #nazi #nazis #germany #jewish #history #antisemitism #neveragain #neverforget #secondworldwar #worldwar2 #wwii #ww2 #hitler #holocaust

@realdonaldtrump what do you doing with those kids? . Crianças (maioria menor de 4 anos) são separadas seus pais na fronteira dos EUA. Entre soluços, várias crianças choram e chamam por seus pais dentro de uma instalação da Patrulha de Fronteira dos Estados Unidos, enquanto um guarda ironiza: "temos uma orquestra, só falta o maestro". Esta situação terrível foi revelada pelo site de notícias ProPublica, que divulgou uma gravação do desespero das crianças separadas de seus pais com base na nova política do governo de Donald Trump para deter a imigração ilegal O guarda de fronteira pergunta em espanhol: "De onde você é? El Salvador, Guatemala" - respondem as crianças, parte dos 2.342 menores separados de seus pais entre 5 de maio e 9 de junho após as famílias entrarem ilegalmente no país, de acordo com dados repassados ao Senado. A medida tem provocado indignação generalizada nos Estados Unidos. . #onu #eua #imigrantes #imigration #kids #criamcassofrendo #holocaust #help

Regrann from @auschwitz.study.group - The Most Daring Escape from Auschwitz – the Bravery and Honour of Kazimierz Piechowski, Eugeniusz Bendera, Stanisław Jaster and Józef Lempart Part 1 On this day in 1942, one of the most daring escapes from Auschwitz took place. We will be posting about it today. Stay tuned! In the picture you can see Kazimierz Piechowski, who initiated this escape. The pic is by ASG. Kazimierz Piechowski was born on 13th October 1919 in Rajkowy, Poland. After the collapse of Polish resistance to the German invasion, Piechowski and his friend decided to leave their hometown 12th November 1939 and attempted to get to France to join the free Polish Army. While crossing the border into Hungary they were caught by a German patrol. They were first sent to a Gestapo prison in Baligrod. They were told by the Gestapo: Actually, we should shoot you, but we have for you something much more interesting. They were sent to a prison in Sanok next, then to Montelupich Prison in Kraków. Their last stop before Auschwitz was a prison in Wiśnicz. Piechowski was sent to Auschwitz as a political prisoner in the second transport on 20th June 1940. His prisoner number was 918. He remembers: They took us there so we could build the blocks, barracks and the roads. It was a tough work, and that year was a bloody one in Auschwitz. He was also assigned to transport the bodies of the dead prisoners to the crematoria: It was a horrible task ... Thank God I worked there only six weeks, otherwise I would end myself. He started planning the escape for four in 1942, after learning his friend Eugeniusz Bendera (number 8502) was on the list of people to be executed. #auschwitz #auschwitzbirkenau #birkenau#auschwitzstudygroup#auschwitzconcentrationcamp#concentrationcamp #deathcamp#holocaustmemorial #holocaust #shoah#subcampsofauschwitz - #regrann

#1938 : Two years ago, for a short time, before it was vandalized, I could take this picture showing a #yiddish language sign for "Matzo island" at beginning of the #taborstrasse, on the #glasscherbeninsel (Island of Shattered Glass f.k.a. #mazzesinsel, #matzoisland) a.k.a. #leopoldstadt, Vienna’s 2nd district. The installation in Yiddish of the Island’s name, in Hebrew letters #מצותינדדזל, on this picture from summer 2016, is by artist Sebestyén #fiumei and has since been removed.

💧Silence💧 -- ⚖️"I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented"⚖️ - By Elie Wiesel - 📖This was a photograph I took when I visited the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC last summer. It was a life-changing and eye-opening experience that I strongly felt everyone in this world needs to see📖 - 👣Walking through the museum, I felt the heaviest silence push down on my mind and my body. There were so many other visitors from all over the world filling the museum rooms and yet, there wasn't a single voice to be heard👣 - 🌫It was a silence of shock, of sadness, of anger, of pure devastation, of disbelief🌫 - 💧I stood there viewing and reading the most horrific stories as tears silently crawled down my cheeks💧 - Never forget. - - - #dailyphotolog391 #themed4/10 - - - - #holocaust #museum #silence #washington #dc #america #summer #photography #quiet #neverforget #people #hope #love #compassion #history #remember #tears #disbelief

Dearest Kitty, I feel awful. Mother finally found out I don’t love her as a mother. It couldn’t have happened at a worse time. She came to my room to hear my prayers, or at least, offered to hear them, and I refused. I do wish that she had found out another way, but I suppose it can’t be helped. I seem to be driving everyone away at the moment. You’re the only person I can talk to without getting shouted at. I wish everything could go back to the way it was before the war, when my family didn’t tell me off for everything and I had friends. At times like this, it’s very easy to despair, or get thrown into a depressive state. I hate this, Kitty. I just want a loving family. It’s getting late now, and we have to extinguish the lights soon, so I shall be going. Yours, Anne. #annesjourny2018 #annefrank #holocaust #ww2 #annexe
