memorial

the 1942 Novi Sad raid memorial, where 1300 jews, roma and other minorities were drowned in the icy waters of Danube by the Hungarian police

 

It was touching and sad, but the most frightening thing was that everyone who was there was so old. Soon, nobody will have a first-hand recollection of those horrible times.

 

It reminds me a bit of the inspiring work done by www.neveragain.no/index.php?lang=en organization, who are trying to document the stories of the WWII survivors, so that future generations can hear the first-hand accounts of the atrocities commited and the horrors people survived.
