World War II Anniversary

On January 27th 1945, the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz was liberated by the Soviet Army. About 6,000 prisoners were released, 95% of whom were Jewish. It's easy to forget these horrors, isn't it? Just a quiet reminder. We have a wide selection of books on the concentration camps, here are a few specifically about Auschwitz.
