I have been to Auschwitz and to Dachau…
On this day 65 years ago today the Red Army “liberated” Auschwitz. This is International Holocaust Remembrance Day and some of us at least will not forget.
I have seen the gas-ovens but I have also seen the gibbet upon which the Russians hung the SS guards. How could I not? Where do you think the gibbet was erected? It was directly in front of the ovens. Sometimes justice is poetic.
This, I hope, shall not again happen under my watch. Europe has to be better than that. Hell’s teeth we are better than that. At least I am.
