Holocaust Memorial Day

Welcome to the Modern Typewriter, a daily blog to discuss topics that can’t be answered easily, or are just some fun topics! Today is January 27th, 2008, I’m Rochester, and I am here to talk about Holocaust Memorial Day here at the Modern Typewriter, and many other places around the world.

January 27th marks the day for remembering the tragic deaths of 6,000,000 Jews, and many other races. During World War 2, the Nazis terrorized the Jews and sent them away to Concentration Camps.

Adolf Hitler was the leader of the Nazis. Since Concentration Camps were filling up quickly, he came up with “the final solution”, which were Death Camps.

Hitler became leader after a vote. He won by only one or two votes. How would history be changed if those votes didn’t vote for him?

“Although I am a Catholic, I really am sad about what happened. It was a terrible time. I cannot believe that my race would such to another race.” says Anna, a writer here at the Modern Typewriter.

This day is marked as Holocaust Memorial Day for one reason. January 27th was the day the Allies liberated the Auschwitz-Birkenau Death Camp.

We hope everyone remembers the horrible days of the Holocaust that more than 8,000,000 people were killed by the Nazis.

Remember, I’m Rochester, and this is the Modern Typewriter, OUT!

  1. “Remembering” the holocaust will never do much good unless we UNDERSTAND how and why a country where 98% of the public professed to be “Christian” tried to exterminate every last Jew they could get their hands on. Since a great many of the highest ranking Nazis were Catholics,begging with Hitler and Goebbels, and their pope was one of the most powerful men in Europe at the time, it’s imperative that Catholics in particular understand the crucial role their church played in that monstrous crime.
