Events are already taking place around the country to mark Holocaust Memorial Day. On 27 January 2019 it will be the 73nd anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. From 1941 to 1945, Jews were targeted and murdered in a genocide.
This methodical action also included the ethnic cleansing of any other race considered inferior by Germany's Nazis. Non-Jewish victims included Gypsies, Poles, communists, homosexuals, Soviet POWs, and the mentally and physically disabled.
In total, approximately 11 million people were killed, including one million Jewish children alone. A network of facilities in Germany and German-occupied territories were used to concentrate, confine, and kill Jews and other victims.
Eva Fahid was one of the lucky ones to survive the death camps. She was an 18-year-old schoolgirl when she was put on a train and deported from Debrecen in eastern Hungary to Auschwitz — one of nearly 440,000 Hungarian Jews sent to death camps between May and July in 1944. You can see what a wonderful person Eva turned out to be despite of the horrors she had to endure.
