On January 27, 1945, the Soviet Army entered the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland to liberate 7,000 of prisoners, mostly sick, that were left behind by their fleeing Nazi captors.  Beginning in 1940, over 1.1 million individuals were murdered at Auschwitz - the largest of the World War II death camps.

Every year on this day, the world comes together to commemorate and remember the six million Jews and millions of other innocent individuals who were victims of the Holocaust.  On this 65th anniversary of Auschwitz’s liberation, I had the honor of joining a Congressional delegation - led by Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) - to participate in ceremonies at the concentration camp.

This year’s remembrance ceremony also included the largest delegation ever from the Israeli Knesset – 64 Israeli lawmakers were in attendance.  It was a humbling experience to stand at such an infamous site, which serves as an important reminder to the world that we must never forget the atrocities that took place or the capabilities of evil by the hands of a few with unchecked power.
