70 YEARS AGO SINCE AUSCHWITZ WAS LIBERATED.
Whenever we think of horror our minds turn to war.
After Auschwitz was liberated the allies rounded up the local town people and marched them through the death camps. "We didn't know" was their response.
The children of the local population were spared the horror.
It did have a profound effect on the local people and indeed the entire world.
I had a passenger whose father rounded up the locals on that day, he described it to me like as if he had been there himself, the smell stayed with his father for years.
"This must never happen again"
Was the cry, yet today thousands of displaced people are in Jordan and the Lebanon,thousands are dying of starvation around the world.
Did you know that there are more slaves in the world today than there was at the height of the slave trade?
The world is still in a bad place and to change it you must start in your own corner.
