Remembering Auschwitz

This week many are remembering the 60 anniversary of the freeing of those trapped by Nazi German at Auschwitz.

Recently I finished Martin Gilbert's fine one-volume history of World War II - The Second World War: A Complete History. One thing that's unique about that volume is the degree to which Gilbert chronicles Nazi atrocities behind the front lines, with a particular focus on the Reich's treatment of the Jews.

We should remember.
