Today we went to Auschwitz. I think Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel says it best in his acceptance speech:

"As long as one child is hungry, our life will be filled with anguish and shame. What all these victims need above all is to know that they are not alone; that we are not forgetting them, that when their voices are stifled we shall lend them ours, that while their freedom depends on ours, the quality of our freedom depends on theirs."

Please, if you are ever nearby, take the time to go to Auschwitz and educate yourself about this unfathomable moment in history.
