69 Years Ago: Liberation of Auschwitz

The Times of Israel:  "To murder 6 million people, the Nazis showed us, you don’t even need fanatics.  Buried at Auschwitz is our certainty in a shared humanity. We now know that any limits to human cruelty, if they exist at all, lie beyond the most rabid viciousness ever conceived."
And yet, there's still this sort of thing: "Italian police also detained two men, ages 33 and 47, on suspicion of instigating racial hatred for antisemitic graffiti, including denial of the Holocaust, near the main judicial offices in Rome. Authorities say the men belong to different far-right groups. No arrests have been announced for the delivery of the pig heads."
