27 January 2021 marks the 76th anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz, the largest of the concentration and extermination camps established on Polish soil.
Of the 1.3 million people that were forcefully sent there in cattle trains, only 7,000 were liberated.
The Holocaust was the systematic, state sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews of whom 1.5 million children, by the Nazi regime, its allies and collaborators.
Quoting Primo Levi, "if understanding is impossible, knowing is imperative because what happened could happen again." We at Saffron join the international effort to ensure that humanity continues to remember all those who suffered, and to ensure that such atrocities are never repeated.
