today is Holocaust Memorial Day

Least we forget: while of course it is right to remember the millions of Jewish victims of the Nazi Genocide, all too often people forget that many of the millions who ended up in the concentration camps were not there for being Jewish - they were there for being gays, gypsies, artists & poets, journalists, disabled people, liberals, communists, socialists, anarchists, and just plain normal.

If there had been bloggers in those days, the nazies would have made sure there was room for them too.
