Remembering

.

Cut down, burned. 
But following the conflagration, all around, tiny green pine saplings push their way out through the ash and grow toward the sun.
.
Today marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
It is also International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

  9. I still can't believe it happened. I've always been afraid that something like the Holocaust will happen again and it doesn't bear thinking about.

  11. Nature's kinder than humankind.

    I took a friend to the doctor today. Her family had to flee Croatia, via Italy, and then over the mountains into Switzerland, where they were lucky enough to be allowed to stay throughout the war years.
