Auschwitz-Birkenau Remembered


auschwitzauschwitz031auschwitz 200January 27th 1945 a date to be remembered.  The day of the Allied liberation of Auschwitz-birkenau.

This date is now commemorated annually as International Holocaust Remembrance day. Auschwitz was built in Poland in May 1940. The first extermination of prisoners  began in September 1941 and went on to be known as the final solution. From 1942 to late 1944 trains delivered Jews from all over Europe to the Nazi gas chambers. Over 1.1 million prisoners were killed,90% were Jewish others were Poles, Jehovah Witnesses, homosexuals Russian POW’s and tens of thousands from diverse nationalities. Many missed the gas chambers to die of starvation disease and being worked to death  Today we can barely imagine that such cruelty and horror could have existed, we cannot imagine the hell created on earth by the Nazi Regime. We must remember, and we must say, Never Again. Rest in Peace those unfortunate victims of the holocaust.

God Bless and keep reading

    We must learn from History my friend. We cannot allow the atrocities carried out by isis, al quada,boko harem who wish to destroy all races of Non Muslims. They continue their cowardly attacks attacks around our world. Today in Tripoli, yesterday in Syria who knows where tomorrow.
    God Bless us one and all, In Sha Allah to those who practice peaceful Islamic lives.
