Auschwitz Remembered


Plaque at Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum

Plaque reads:  For ever let this place be a cry of despair and a warning to humanity where the Nazis murdered about one-and-a-half million men, women, and children – mainly Jews from various countries of Europe. Auschwitz-Birkenau. 1940-1945

Many tributes were created for the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz this past January. One such tribute – simply called “Auschwitz” – is a beautifully done documentary filmed on location at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum – produced by Steven Spielberg, narrated by Meryl Streep, with music by Hans Zimmer. The film uses archival war footage, flyovers and computer-generated imagery that captures the scale and brutal utility of the Reich’s largest and most notorious death camp. It is a succinct and impactful education on the genocide at Auschwitz. Watch here or here.
