Duty Of Memory

This time I'm coming with a special topic as we just celebrated May 8th, 1945 - end of World War II. I will share a FB photo album speaking by itself...
Some of those pics will be integrated in my FAA portfolio.
Feel free to share...

Translation of French comments is the following:

Duty of Memory...
Pictures in this album tell, by themselves a story. The story of Natzweiler-Struthof concentration camp, located between Vosges Mountains and Alsace region in France. 52000 prisoners went into this camp between 1941 and 1944. They were called Nacht und Nebel (Night and Fog). The camp held a crematorium and a gerry-rigged gas chamber outside the main camp. Even if it was not used for mass extermination, 22000 people died due to strenuous work, medical experiments, poor nutrition and mistreatment by the SS guards.
