"We Had a Whole World"

70 years ago today, International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Soviet troops liberated Auschwitz-Birkenau, the most deadly Nazi concentration camp.

In the video below, one way to remember the world which existed before the Holocaust:
Children of survivors, we don't have any artifacts. We don't have photographs. We don't have family heirlooms. They call us the second generation, which, if you think about it, it means our parents are the first generation and nothing existed before us. And it's not true. We had a whole history. We had a whole world. And my grandfather is just one person in that world, but he existed before the war.

And I found him.
