Auschwitz 70 Years Later

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.

One Response to Auschwitz 70 Years Later

  1. W says:

    Well said the prophet “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness…” (Isaiah 5:20). There is obvious, blatant evil going on all around us. ISIS comes to mind. Of course they claim to be the righteous ones, sent by God to expunge the infidels. So they see themselves as good and the rest of us as evil. Most sane and rational people are not fooled by them. But I am starting to wonder if ISIS is the real threat. As you astutely observed, the real threat is more subtle. Google “radical brownies” for a good example of what I mean. Those on the left accuse the “radical right” of being Nazis. But it will be apparent to anyone that has a sense of history that what we are seeing with these new “brownies” is very reminiscent of the type of brainwashing employed in the “training” of the Hitler youth. But there is an ironic twist to all this. These radical brownies, and others on the “left” claim to be fighting for social justice. What they really intend is to take over. And here is the ironic part. All of the “security” measures that the right-wingers pushed to put in place after 911, like “Homeland Security” will be the tools that are used to round up the Christians and put them into prison. Reading, or even owning a bible will become a hate crime. So all of us “good Christians” that were so eager to implement legislation that would allow us to profile and roundup “undesirables” are now going to be the ones who are profiled and rounded up. You could say we are hoist with our own petard. I think the likes of ISIS may be just a decoy. The real enemy is within…
