I was shocked when i read in Metro this morning that 50% of the people asked in a survey had never heard of Auschwitz. I visited Auschwitz 10 years ago, and it really made a lasting impression on my mind and soul, and i still have strong memories from the visit. I believe everyone should visit the site at least once, to remember what happened, and HOW it happened, and to try and make sure this will never happen again. But after viewing people's comments and some friends' opinions, is it important to hold on to the history of Auschwitz, or should we not hold on to history so strongly and rather look to the future? I believe that without the knowledge of history it will only repeat itself. Basically, i believe that to know the past one can know and change the future. What do you think?
