27 January 2011, Holocaust Memorial Day, marks the 66th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps.
To commemorate this anniversary, the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Foundation has launched the “Intervene Now!” campaign, designed to engage people around the world in order to preserve the remains and the memory of the victims and survivors of the German Nazi Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and extermination camps. After 66 years, the camp and grounds, along with thousands of invaluable historical objects, face accelerated and irreversible deterioration and natural erosion.
The campaign organizers are requesting public support for the conservation of this piece of history. By never forgetting, we can better ensure that this never again happens.
