70 years ago this week...

It's 70 years ago this week that the concentration camp Auschwitz  and surrounding camps were liberated by the Red army. 
Unless you've been dead you'll have seen it all over the news this week, lot of politicians saying how terrible it was and how the Jews have suffered.  But they all seen to have forgetten it wasn't only Jew at these death camps.  Although figures are still confused it seems the numbers who died in these camps were roughly, 1.1 million Jews, 80.000 Poles, 25.000 Gypsies and 15.000 Soviet soldiers, and around 5.000 others. 
Still a terrible thing but lets remember all who died at these camps.
