May We Never Forget
The Tattooist Of Auschwitz by Heather Morris is a true story. It is a powerful story. It is a harrowing story. And it is a story that needs to be told in memory of the six million innocent men, women and children who perished in the holocaust.
Auschwitz was hell on earth. It was physical torture. It was mental torture. A place of unspeakable horrors. It was a place where people did what they had to in order to survive. “Choosing to live is an act of defiance, a form of heroism.” Every man, woman and child in there was a hero. They must not be forgotten.
There were individual acts of bravery. People who did try to ease suffering. And people who would give their lives for the sake of another. “To save one is to save the world.”
Auschwitz was the place where Dr Mengele was. His inhumanity to man knew no bounds. “Mengele, a doctor… who will cause more pain than he eases.”
The Tattooist Of Auschwitz is a difficult read. It is not pleasant but we need to read it in memory of the six million. May we never forget them.
