Thank you for posting this and reminding me of the significance of this date. The photograph welled up emotions in me that I hadn’t felt for some time.On this date, January 27, 1945, the Red Army liberated Auschwitz. My grandparents, who by that time were living in the U.S., were from Budapest and Bratislava. Members of their family were killed in Auschwitz. Among those who survived was a Hungarian nephew and his future wife (who had been a subject of Mengele's twins experiments). This photo shows the railway ramp that was placed in operation in May 1944 to expedite the killing of more than 400,000 Jews from Hungary.

I hope the world remembers what happened there so as to avoid anything like it in the future.
At least to me, the photograph is extremely powerful
