It's Been A Long Time

...but not long enough.

(Oh, you thought this post was about the absence of any updates since November. No, sorry)

An article appearing in The Opinion Pages of today's NYT Sunday Review details holocaust researchers' recent uncovering of previously undocumented Nazi ghettos and camps. We now know that throughout Europe there were at least 42,500: "30,000 slave labor camps; 1,150 Jewish ghettos; 980 concentration camps; 1,000 prisoner-of-war camps; 500 brothels filled with sex slaves; and thousands of other camps used for euthanizing the elderly and infirm, performing forced abortions, 'Germanizing' prisoners or transporting victims to killing centers." These discoveries bring the estimated number of prisoners killed up from 11 million to between 15 and 20 million.

Never Forget.
