Today we commemorate that Camp Auschwitz was liberated 70 years ago. I visited the camp with my class in high school and it made a lasting impression on me. We saw rooms packed with children’s shoes, toothbrushes, toys, and then read that it was just 1% of the total number that had been collected. Each one representing a tragic story.
The website Jewish Monument tries to show each of these stories of the Dutch victims of the Holocaust. On the homepage, one dot represents each victim: blue for adult men, red for adult women, green for boys age 6-21, yellow for girls age 6-21, cyan for boys under 6 and pink for girls under 6. Each dot will take you to a page that tells the story of that person and his/her family. You can also search for names in the top right corner of the homepage.
