At the Gates of Hell: The Liberation of Bergen-Belsen, April 1945

The Holocaust was a genocide in which some six million European Jews were killed by Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany, and the World War II collaborators with the Nazis. Mass graves like this one appear all over Europe at concentration camps.

Heartrending Release, 1945.  This once in a lifetime image depicts Holocaust survivors at the moment of realizing they are liberated. This is such candid, raw photo you would think it was taken on a cellphone at the spur of the moment.

The Moment of Liberation, 1945 [[MORE]] This is such a powerful photo. It was taken in April, 1945 by Major Clarence Benjamin and shows a train of Jewish prisoners that had been intercepted by Allied Forces. This is the moment they learned that the.

Members of the Jewish resistance movement captured by the SS during the suppression of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising in 1943 are lined up against a wall prior to being searched for weapons.

This is maybe one of the most powerful pictures I have ever seen. The numbers on the arms are from prisoners of Nazi concentration camps. The numbers replaced their names while at the camps and they were tattooed on so that they could be easily tracked by the Germans. This is why we study history. So this never happens again.

The article in the Greeley Tribune said that Hochman called Holocaust deniers “poison.”
