Nazi Concentration Camps (1945)

I share this not to gawk at past atrocities, and trust me the images within are raw and direct and likely to bring up powerful emotions, but to reflect on how seemingly innocuous beginnings in the mid-1930s ended up, within a very short time span, with such intense barbarism.

It is, for me, feelings of despair, anger and sadness to think on such items but I believe that to discuss it with those we love opens our eyes and removes the scales of "reality TV", "cats on the Internet"and even the daily narcotic of "work". It is with reality and it's hard water cleansing that brings many to warn publicly about present day patterns that reflect those earlier times and we cannot help but become more aware of how easily times can slip away from us.

The Nazi's came to official power in 1933 with it all ending at the end of World War II, 1945.

12 years. 12 years for it all to go from dancing girls to the images of this video.
12 years ago was 2002. Not so long at all.
But 12 years from now is what matters. 2026, what will it be like?
