1945:

On this day, Soviet troops enter Auschwitz, Poland, freeing the survivors of the network of concentration camps-and finally revealing to the world the depth of the horrors perpetrated there.

Auschwitz was really a group of camps, designated I, II, and III. There were also 40 smaller "satellite" camps. It was at Auschwitz II, at Birkenau, established in October 1941, that the SS created a complex, monstrously orchestrated killing ground: 300 prison barracks; four "bathhouses" in which prisoners were gassed; corpse cellars; and cremating ovens. Thousands of prisoners were also used for medical experiments overseen and performed by the camp doctor, Josef Mengele, the "Angel of Death."

The Red Army had been advancing deeper into Poland since mid-January. Having liberated Warsaw and Krakow, Soviet troops headed for Auschwitz. In anticipation of the Soviet arrival, the German Gestapo began a murder spree in the camps, shooting sick prisoners and blowing up crematoria in a desperate attempt to destroy the evidence of their crimes. When the Red Army finally broke through, Soviet soldiers encountered 648 corpses and more than 7,000 starving camp survivors. There were also six storehouses filled with literally hundreds of thousands of women's dresses, men's suits, and shoes that the Germans did not have time to burn.

Horrible, darkest moment in our time. Thanks for sharing and keeping the memory alive. I tell you, looking at Russia today, I am worried this type of hatred is still very present.

You don't have to look to Russia, look no farther than the OP of this thread. SLAYER is a Nazi aficionado and sympathizer. It's his SS duty to keep the memory alive. As a matter of fact, one of his other account's name is Dr Josef Mengele.

Don't go calling me Dr Feelgood and blaming me that you're a Nazi; you've been telling everyone for years. It's not like it's a secret.
I just don't think it's right eliciting praise from people like F Wallace when, in fact, you believe these were the glory days of the world.
2nd note: you didn't figure out the morse code, you got that info elsewhere.
