Never again. Never forget.

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. I'm a little late, but it's really never too late to remember not to forget.

In a weirdly hopeful sign, there might be a small corner in Egypt — of all places — that isn't forgetting:

A new book which does not deny the Holocaust and the number of Jews murdered in it has been published in Egypt in recent days, Israel's leading newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported Tuesday.The book, "The Holocaust of the Jews – concentration camp, Auschwitz Birkenau" was written in Arabic and is 325 pages long. The author is Dr. Ramsis Otz.

The book is bases on research carried out in the West and in the countries of the former Soviet bloc, and presents the truthful and known picture regarding what took place in the concentration camp – a first for Egypt.

The book includes the set up the camp, the Nazi plan for the destruction of the Jews, means of genocide, the incinerators, injuries to the bodies of the victims, Joseph Mengele, Rudolph Hess, the women and children in the camp, and more.Sources in the Israeli embassy in Egypt say that the book has high importance due to the strengthening of voices in Egypt and the Arab world which deny the Holocaust, doubt the number of Jews murdered, and attributing the Holocaust to Zionist media manipulation.

In addition to that, few of the studies in the Arab world and specifically in Egypt address the Holocaust and the death camps in the way that the book does. The author used terms in the book such as mass destruction, forced labor, and Holocaust.

    You know, isn’t Hitler in that pic pointing his index finger at someone?

    I shall echo Earl’s sentiments. Be ever vigilant, for death is but one wrong step away in the Middle East. And Europe as well.

    I sincerelly think hitler is a monster and hope that he is paying for every life he took, for every tear he provoked, for every child he deprived of life, and for every thought of accomplishing his murderous plan he had.
    I don’t know how people were so dumb to follow his retarded promises and blame the jews for what happened in WW1!
    It was just a sign that idiots had taken over!
    I hope one day I could go to Europe so that someone could explain to me why such a huge amount of people decided to follow such an idiotic man!
    I can’t say how sorry I am for the victims and survivors because I think I never lived through that but i seriously wish all of them the best of the best and to just let you guys know that i would have loved to die for you guys!
    I honestly thank those who had the courage to go against him and hope that we will never forget what one man caused.

    I came across many heart wrenching visuals on the net relating to the holocaust.
    WAR AND VIOLENCE DOES NO GOOD TO ANYONE and we must really understand this.
    What kind of an ANIMAL must Hitler be to have caused so much of mass destruction… Human mind is capable of such henious crimes .. i will never be able to understand how could the others support Hitler. It simply disgusts me… I salute people who helped the Jews during the troubled times and also admire the courage and the fighting spirit of the survivors…They are the real heroes…
    Money and power have become much more important than human lives….. even in the current scenario there are highly developed countries who are doing nothing to make the world a better place to live in…. infact THANKS TO THESE MAJOR SUPERPOWERS THAT THERE ARE SO MANY ATROCITIES BEING COMMITTED ON PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD. look at the state of Africa and the Middle east ….. the innocents are perishing because of the mistakes committed by the developed world….

    WHERE WERE THE OTHER COUNTRIES WHEN THE JEWS WERE BEING SLAUGHTERED???

    If timely intervention had taken place then millions of jews and others would not have perished….

    WE MUST LEARN A LESSON FROM THE MISTAKES OF OUR PAST … AND IF WE DONT THEN WE ARE ALL BRAIN DEAD …. what is the point of being educated when we have lost the ability to comprehend ….

    WAR AND VIOLENCE DOES NO GOOD TO ANYONE

    If that is the lesson you took from such events, then the cycle of violence and horror will never be broken. Not even for small segments of time.
