A 1942 photo of Hans Scholl, Sophie Scholl and Christoph Probst - members of the student resistance group, “White Rose”. The group distributed pamphlets across Germany appealing to the public’s sense of moral duty, calling for resistance to the Nazi dictatorship, and demanding an end to the war.
Sophie would be caught and reported to the Gestapo on the 18th of February, 1943 at Ludwig Maximilians University. All three would then be sentenced 5 days later and beheaded.

On January 27th each year, we remember the victims of the Nazi era. The theme of this year’s remembrance day is Children and the Holocaust.

Mother and Son on board the death train from Bergen-Belsen liberated at Madgeburg
I find this picture very moving: mothers love to show off their youngsters, no matter what the situation. The little fellow was pleased at having his picture taken. Note the thin legs and brave smile.
Please watch the video. It’s a reminder of why we must never forget history.
INTERNATIONAL HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY is January 27
For more than six decades, Sol Finkelstein didn’t know his father’s fate.
In 1945, just days before liberation at Mauthausen concentration camp, Sol and his father were separated, and Sol never saw him again.
Sol’s son Joseph recently contacted our Museum in hopes of finding more information about his grandfather. Our staff discovered the date and place of his death, and Sol’s family was able to visit his grave in Austria.
After learning that Sol had no photos of his father, our staff searched further and found an identification card with a picture of Sol’s father. For the first time since he was a teenager Sol saw his father’s face—a moment he graciously allowed us to capture on film.
Jaget: I’m the son of a Holocaust survivor…. it was not the Peace Corps, or Green Peace, of Hippies or Isolationists (modern Libertarians) or “tree huggers” or University Professors or Peace-nicks or Coexisters or the League of Nations or the Media or Ghandi that liberated the Jews and ended WWII! It was the most moral and greatest fighting force in history… the US Military. God Bless the US of A!
