Thoughts On the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of Buchenwald

As the world focuses on the coronavirus and the destruction it leaves in its wake, there are other pieces of news that deserve the spotlight.

Today is the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Buchenwald.

The clip above is from the 2001 television miniseries Band of Brothers. Though some may say that the Holocaust is in the past and we no longer need to talk about it, I disagree. The lessons from this time in history are as relevant as they ever were.

If there is one thing the coronavirus has done, it has revealed the fractures and the major societal issues that continue to plague us. My hope is that when this is all said and done, we will live in a better world and finally learn from the past.

May the memories of those who perished within Buchenwald be a blessing.
