I have written on Holocaust themes many times and by far the most popular blog post – the one that gets the most ‘visits’ is this one about the hidden synagogue built in Theresienstadt concentration camp

I wrote in last week’s blog that this year marks 50 years since the capture and trial of Adolf Eichmann Hitler’s second in command who carried out the edicts of the Third Reich with terrifying enjoyment and horrifying precision.
These stories and all the other accounts of survivors must continue to be told so that the world never forgets and no one can ever deny what happened.
