Today was set aside by the UN last year as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. It's the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, one of the Nazi killing centers.

Light a candle tonight to remember... and to remind everyone around you that you'll do your part to see that it never happens again.
