    60th Anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz

    Auschwitz horrors remembered
    28 January 2005

    Tears were shed for the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust as survivors gathered to remember the horrors of the Nazi atrocities.

    The Queen and Prime Minister Tony Blair paid their respects at the national ceremony in London to mark the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp.

    In an emotional service, grandchildren of the survivors read names from a list of 3,000 dead - all relatives of those at the National Holocaust Day commemoration in the Palace of Westminster's Westminster Hall.

    As well as Jews, hundreds of thousands of others, from Roma gypsie and homosexuals to the disabled and mentally ill were slaughtered by the Nazis.

    During the service, eerie black and white images of Auschwitz were projected on to the chilly Hall's historic stone walls, from mugshots of prisoners to starving people lying in concentration camp bunks.

    After a flame taken from one burning at the Belsen camp arrived, the Queen lit the first of 60 remembrance candles - one candle for every year since Auschwitz was liberated.

    Survivors armed with thin white candles stood and slowly made their way to the front to light the others - some returning to their seats in tears.

    The Chief Rabbi Dr Jonathan Sacks described the Holocaust as the "greatest crime of man against man".

    Mr Blair said prejudice must be confronted wherever it occurs. "We must never dishonour their memory by allowing the ugly poison of racial prejudice and hatred to hold sway again," he said.

    In snow-covered Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland, where up to 1.5 million perished, 29 world leaders, Foreign Secretary Jack Straw and the Earl of Wessex attended the international ceremony.

    it's kind of creepy going there cause there are all these walls with photos that the nazi's took of each prisoner and every so often you'll see where soembody has come to visit the place and has left flowers behind the photos.When I was there there was an old lady crying and lighting candles at the wall where executions by firing squad took place. It was -14 and snow falling heavily.Really sombre stuff.

    i guess we have to look back to be better looking forward..

    the more you learn about the holocaust the harder it is to believe that humans could actually do that to each other. and it was only 60 years ago...

    Dachau had a similar setup (walls of giant pictures), but I don't recall them having the individual pictures.
