Since I had previously written blogs on Auschwitz it is worth mentioning that on January 27th it will be 70 years since its liberation. Auschwitz has been the symbol for terror, horror and abomination since it was built in 1941. It was not even finished when it was liberated in 1945. Today we cannot even begin to grasp the scale of what it was like to be sent there and even survive that horror. I found a video of a drone sweep of Auschwitz just so you can see how big it was.
Most won’t even pay any attention or even care about what happened back in the 1940s because it was long ago. The thing is, though, history is often repeated when humans don’t learn the lesson the first time. Can such a horrible thing happen again? Yes, it most certainly can but this time, the devil will bring it about in a different way. We won’t have a raving lunatic like Hitler ranting wildly at a crowd. No, this time it will be more subtle.
So as you watch the video reflect on what it was like for all those poor humans who were rounded up and no one to stop Hitler from killing them all. It is said that all that has to happen for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing. However, in this current day and age, that doesn’t even matter because good is seen as evil and evil is seen as good. Humans are sinking deeper and deeper into an abyss.
There is only one Hope and that is Jesus Christ.
