“Schindler’s List Theme” – Itzhak Perlman

On 27 January 1945, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi concentration and death camp, was liberated by the Red Army.

International Holocaust Remembrance Day, is an international memorial day on 27 January commemorating the victims of the Holocaust. It commemorates the genocide that resulted in the death of an estimated 6 million Jewish people, 2 million Romani people, 250,000 mentally and physically disabled people, and 9,000 homosexual men by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. It was designated by the United Nations General Assembly resolution 60/7 on 1 November 2005 during the 42nd plenary session. The resolution came after a special session was held earlier that year on 24 January 2005 during which the United Nations General Assembly marked the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps and the end of the Holocaust.

  1. I had never thought that a movie can capture me in so many ways: Touching by the wave of humanity and altruism, but also shocking to the bones because of the cruelty and detestably from a history that is not too far away. Oskar Schindler was a saint and still … he blamed himself that he did not do more. This music brought tears to my eyes because it captures all: the tragedy and the love!
