This entire family went to the gas chamber.

Auschwitz, 1944. Not far from us, flames were leaping up from a ditch, gigantic flames. They were burning something. A lorry drew up at the pit and delivered its load-little children. Babies! . Around us, everyone a weeping. Someone began to recite the Kaddish. I do not know if it has ever happened before, in the long history of the Jews, that people have ever recited the prayer for the dead for themselves .... Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp .... Never shall I forget that smoke. Never shall I forget the little faces of the children, whose bodies I saw turned into wreaths of smoke beneath a silent sky.
From Night
By Eli Wiesel

I'm not Jewish...I was twelve when i first read the Diary of Anne Frank and the horrible images of holocaust have haunted me ever since, the images of all those innocent children, men and women murdered for their identity. Holocaust must never be forgotten. Remember the fallen! Rest in peace, pure souls.
