70 years on and not a day goes past that I do not give a thought for the horror and sheer misery the individuals ripped from their lives and thrown into the hell that was the concentration camps. How did this happen? The images shown in this documentary should be shown to every child in every school across the globe. This way something like this might never happen again. Sadly I feel that this is nothing short of a pipe dream as we humans have a tenancy to forget history to attempt to make new history which inevitably makes the past look like child's play. For all humans sake inhumane treatment of our fellow man should never be this barbaric ever again.

Those of us who strive for peace and fairness for all need to always aware for the next maniacal leader capable of such horror and end their reign before it gets started.
